  1. First, you do not have to take his abuse. Unless he is verbally threatening to hurt you and/or your children, you can't claim domestic violence or assault. He must touch or strike you or place you in reasonable fear of being able to do so. You should talk to a victim counselor at a women's shelter and file for a domestic violence injunction to get him out of your house. You don't have to allege anything to get a divorce in Florida. You definitely need advice before this situation becomes physical or worse. Best of luc.


  2. Lots of shelters for abused women in Miami. Check out the following link. http://www.womenshelters.org/cit/fl-miami

    Good luck.


  3. If you call the police, they might ask him to leave the house for the night. You should at a minimum contact a counseler at a domestic violence shelter. Is there any particular reason for not filing for divorce? If you file for dissolution, you can ask the court for exclusive use and possession of the marital home.
