Well you have a number of options - if he is being abusive towards you then you can apply to the court for a non molestation order to protect yourself from him. This is an order from the court which can keep him away from you and from contacting you for a period of time - basically maintaining that you stay safe. It is aimed at preventing your partner or ex-partner from using or threatening violence against you or your child, or intimidating, harassing or pestering you, in order to ensure the health, safety and well-being of yourself and your children.You may also be able to apply for an occupation order. An occupation order is an order issued by the court which sets out who has the right to stay, return or be excluded from a family home. An occupation order doesn't change the financial shares in a home. It is usually a short-term measure and the length of time that it lasts will depend on your circumstances. In many cases an order will last for 6 or 12 months and some can be renewed.An order can only be made for a property where you both live, did live, or intended to live in as the family home. I hope this helps - happy to discuss. Please remember to rate positively
