Want to Divorce but scared of custody battle

I have wanted to divorce my husband for quite some time now but since I am only a housewife (except for selling nickle and dime amounts of Avon products on the side) I worry that I will not be able to recieve full custody of my three year old, 21 month old and my unborn. My children are my life...I couldn't bear loosing them. My husband (and his father...whom I've been forced to live with for the past 6 years) both are alcholics (yet, trying to cut down), avid pornograpghy readers, and use "pot" daily. If my children end up living here without me, who will protect them from being exposed to these things? Should I get these habits on videotape to give to a lawyer to help me prove my point in court? That is the only way that I can think of to help keep my girls and I together. I'd rather continue living here having "some" control over what the girls are exposed to rather than having no control at all due to unsupervised custody.
