I am a housewife and I do part time book keeping from home. I have a 11 years old boy. When my son was 3 weeks old, my husband announced that he preferred life as a single. We do not have physical contact since then. We slept in separate room. For the past 11 years, he did all kind and said all kind of unsavory word to me and my son and ask me to file a divorce, when I ask him to file, he said he wont do that. He can wait till I go  and do the filing or we die together. 

After all these years, other than me and son are still staying for free in the house. I borne all expenditure for myself and my son. He only give some money sometimes. Since, 2 years ago, he stop to pay anything, and became aggravated especially against my son. It affected my son mentally and psychologically. I want to move out as soon as possible to go on with a healthier and happier life. I want to know what are the disadvantage and consequences if I were to move out now and file divorce later, in terms of all aspects in divorce and family law.

Thank you.

As you know I might not be able to afford a lawyer, can I do the filling myself?

Yes you can do the filing yourself.
But i don't have the experience of filing in divorce cases,
so you may need to find out how to do it yourself.

Before you start filing, you may need to decide whether you want to file for
a. Joint Petition or
b. Single Petition.

Hi Pingu,

Bring your son and husband to Avengers Malaysia HQ for discussion and mediation to solve all problems.

Since your son is suffering from his misbehavior, you should do whatever is necessary to secure your and your child’s safety. This may include going to court for a protective order.

@ tornado

How do you know the child have been mistreated? Only hear one side of the story. The unspoken side could be much worse.

By the way, the Interim Protection Order is for physical abuses. Once an Interim Protection Order is out.. total warfare for some couples.
