Dear Madam, You can file for divorce on the ground of cruelty under Indian Divorce Act. If you do not have enough means to support yourself and your children then you can also apply for maintenance from your husband, which is granted at the discretion of the court. You should also file an application for custody of your children. All these proceedings can be filed before the family court in your city. It is imperative that you consult a good lawyer and seek his assistance in the divorce proceedings.

Dear Ma'am, You can file for divorce on the grounds of mental cruelty. As you have not specified the religion, the provisions may differ.
