First, stop giving him your day to day life. He left, get over it. What you are going to tell me is that it is hard. I KNOW THIS, but you have a child who needs you to be physically and mentally in charge. Do not let your husband take your life away from you. You are letting him do that.
There is no quicky fix, but you are entitled to child support. I doubt that filing for alimony would be adventageous for you, but you may have a fantastic alienation of affection claim. Best of luck.
