Ive been married for almost 5 months now and my marriage is dissolving. I have not filed for divorce yet but I have removed myself from our residence due to his abusive nature. He receives SSI Disability monthly I wanted to find out if could receive any financial support from him at this point

Not likely. A marriage of only 5 months does not warrant spousal support in most cases, and for any marriage of less than ten years the support will usually only be 1/2 the length of the marriage anyway. Really, though, without a full family financial picture, there is no way to evaluate support.
