Forced marriage – please help!

When I think about marrying him my heartbeat stops for a while. I am very much afraid of him because of what he did to me(I can say it was zina because he did it before Nikah) at very young age. I want Divorce but parents will literally kill me if I would say this in front of them.

Can I avoid returning my Mahr after the Khula, as my husband owes me money?

Basically my husband is not providing for me and my kids, he is gambling all his earnings and taking drugs. He has stopped praying and going to the mosque. Does not speak to his parents or relatives or even his kids much. He has left now and said he will never come back after we had arguements regarding his unislamic behavoiur re drugs and gambling.
