You may approach the magistrate court by filing complaint under section 498(A) and other sections of IPC and section 3&7 of dowry prohibition act, if you feel that police is not going to help you. You can also file complaint under domestic violence act seeking various reliefs like protection, shelter, protection of custody of child, maintaince for you and child. As far as divorce is concerned you shall approach the concerned family court seeking decree of divorce on the ground of cruelty

Dear Madam,
The remedy available in your situation are manifold. You can file a case for divorce under the hindu marriage act (if you and your husband are hindus). You can at the same time initiate criminal proceedings under the Indian Penal Code and you can also avail remedy under the domestic violence act. Further you can also claim maintenance from your husband and child support from your husband.

Therefore the remedies available to you are many and the best part is that you can avail the said remedies simultaneously, i.e. at the same time.
