I feel you will benefit from visiting a lawyer in his or her office and an in person consultation. Your question is unclear. If you feel you are being abused, you can request a domestic violence restraining order. Property acquired before marriage is his separate property anyways. And there are complicated rules about your (and community) rights for reimbursement which are difficult to explain in such forum.
You must contact a local attorney or obtain telephonic consultation from an attorney to discuss specifics of your situation and get full advise. The information given here is general in nature and does not establish attorney-client relationship.
If he files for legal separation, he will have to buy out your interest in the house but he get it from the refi - so it would probably be to your advantage since you have been living separately anyway for 2 years.
