Greetings. You do not have to leave because of the free trader agreement. The house is his separate property, but it may have some marital equity formed after the date of separation.
If I were you, I would immediately retain an attorney to assist you in negotiating with your spouse. If you document his threats, you will have a better time in court, if you do end up having to stand before a judge. Thank you.
