I am confused over my divorce

I am 24 years old and have a 2 year and 7 months old daughter. My husband was a catholic but converted himself to islam to marry me. Though my family was against our marriage later they were fine with it. three months after marriage I found out that he was a drug addict. He never could do a job for more than few weeks and he would mentally torture me asking for money. I loved him truly and honestly and went through a lot of humiliation and pain because of his addiction.

I’ve been in a relationship for 6 years, but my father has threatened to kill me if I choose my own husband.

I would like to begin this query by asking Almighty Allah to forgive me for all that I have done. In some way I know I may not have done the right thing but I don’t know what is right or wrong anymore. I live in a family where, for me it has been a nightmare. I know Islam tells you to respect your parents but what my family has done with me I cannot respect my parents.

I am in too much pain, I’ve had enough but I feel horrible at the same time

I want to Divorce my husband of 8 years. We have two children together. Can somebody please give me the strength to leave him. He is very Controlling, abusive mentally physically.

He punch’s me in my head, swears at me, calls me horrible names, two days after I gave birth to his child he beat me, he beat me while I was pregnant. I do everything for this man, I clean, I cook, I take care of his kids, I take care of him, his needs, but when he falls into a rage. Nobody can help him cool down.

If I want a divorce I have to leave, he wont give me any money, he’s going to take everything off my name. So now what, leave where with two kids?
