If you have the child living with you, most often the mother will be awarded the right to stay living in the house, as it is seen as the family home. I would get yourslf some real legal advice on this, but as his wife you do have a claim to anything acquired duriong marriage, and even if you haven't contributed to the mortgage etc, the law sees your role as mother and homemaker as a contribution instead of a financil one. But it does really depend on where you live. I would imagine he is saying all of this to try to scare you into staying with him. Don't let him. Good luck.
