    You have no chance at spousal support.

    File for divorce and child support - you may wish to wait until the second child is born.

    You say you have a marriage certificate.
    Where were you married?
    In Texas, you can receive temporary spousal support, while the divorce is pending.
    You will also get child support, assuming you are granted custody of the child.
    I suggest you speak with a lawyer.
    Go in person, and the lawyer's fees will be paid out of the the marital estate.
    That is the money he has made, while you have been married.
    Do not worry about having money, the lawyer will make sure he pays for the costs.

    Good luck, and do not wait. Do this ASAP.
