Customer Question

Hello. My husband has told me he wants to leave. We have a 7 month old daughter and I am 16 weeks pregnant. I am from NZ so want to return to be with my family. What rights do I have for financial support? When we were together we both agreed that I wasn't going to go back to work until the kids went to school. Will he have to provide for a house, food and clothing? Many thanks.
