Hi, thank you for your question.
-Are you living apart from him?
-Is there a restraining order and is your daughter now safe from him?
-Are you seeking advice in relation to.a divorce only?
Thank you for confirming. You can proceed with a divorce under the fact of 5 year separation and do not require his consent to obtain this, although you will need to demonstrate to the court that he is aware of the petition. You can potentially do this yourself, and you can find the relevant forms and guidance on each stage here: https://www.gov.uk/divorce/overview
The court fee for the divorce is £550 although if you are on a low income you can apply for fee exemption (see here: https://www.gov.uk/get-help-with-court-fees)
