We are in the process of getting a divorce. He was abusive to myself and my daughter. He has supervised visits at this time. I am very afraid and we do not have money to hire a new lawyer. My husband has friends with the police department that have been harassing me. I reported it. Ever since the restraining order was lifted my husband has been harassing me.

Find out if your county, city, town has Legal Aid or Volunteer Lawyers program. Most counties do, especially for cases involving dv. Call your local county bar association. They may have programs where attorneys take this type of cases pro bono (free) or at a dramatically reduced rate. As pointed out, you should talk in detail about your circumstances with an attorney who would be representing you. Good luck!
