My husband has an upcoming project that will make him millions of dollars. We have been together for 10 years. He has been working on this for the last three. He has become emotional abusive and physical. I really am considering divorce. I am afraid I will not see a penny of this project by divorcing him before it happens.

You need to consult with an attorney about your options.
If you divorce before the money happens, you probably won't get it.
You cannot divide something that does not yet exist.
I'm sure that he will argue that you don't deserve it.
Mediation might be an option for you.
Look on this website and www.avvo.com for an attorney in your area.
Based on what you have written, there are a few questions which would require more specific clarifications. Where do you and your husband live? When were you and your husband married? Who owns the project your husband is working on (e.g. does your husband own his own business or does your husband work for a company)? Why do you believe that you will not see a penny of this project if you divorce his before the project happens? These and many other questions would need specific answers to prior to being able to provide you with a clear and direct path to proceed down in your situation.
