What are the grounds taken for divorce. Is it the second marriage of your husband also, if yes then would like to see reasons for separation for both of you, in order to proceed further.
Moreover you should file a case under sec. 9 of HINDU MARRIAGE ACT

Dear Concerned

1. Your husband and in laws can not force you to leave the house even if they have filed case of legal separation , immediately file a criminal complaint against your husband and in laws for physical , mental and social abuse to stop them sending you out of the house.

2. If your husband has got valid reasons to separate from like mental cruelty or adultery and has proofs for those , it would be difficult to keep this marriage. You can file for restitution of marriage .

3. Immediate seek legal help before the worse happens.
