A divorce, when there are children involved, can be very traumatic for them.
Unfortunately you cannot force someone to be responsible. You can engage on a legal procedure to get maintenance for your children but no amount of court orders will make a parent become emotionally responsible for their children if they do not want to.
The best is to accept this and move on with your children. Accept that his issues have crippled him to be able to take care of his children and allow for your healing to take place. It is sad for any child to loose a parent, but all they need is one stable, loving and responsible adult in their life to find their happiness and stability.
You did the right thing to end such an abusive relationship and you cannot wait for someone else to change. You deserve to be happy and freeing yourself from this abuse is the first step towards claiming your right to be happy. Trust your decision and move forward towards a new life.
