Hello for clarification- how long have you been married?
any children under 18 at home?
have you considered seperation/divorce?
I said that I would write and tell you exactly what you are asking for on Monday.
Thank you for explaining the complete circumstances to me.
You can apply for an injunction called a Non-Molestation Order to prevent him coming within 100 m of you or telephoning you and an Occupation Order to make him leave the house if you have been the victim or you fear physical violence and/or you have been the victim of emotional violence. This is what you are ringing the solicitor and asking for.
In family/divorce matters there is virtually no legal aid now but it is available in cases of domestic violence and child abduction (obviously the latter does not apply here.)
In respect of starting divorce proceedings, then from what you have told me, you certainly have more than sufficient grounds to get divorced for unreasonable behaviour.
Here is a little reading on what you are applying for https://www.gov.uk/injunction-domestic-violence
. I am happy to answer any specific points you wish to raise, arising from this.
