Will it effect my entitlement to assets if I leave the family home

Hi all, hoping for a bit of advice. Me and h separated at the beginning of the year, I live in the family home, he lives in an annex on the property ( separate property, different address). He has continued to pay he mortgage and does not pay any maintenance.
Things are very toxic between us and I would like to move out, however, as I am a part time student and work part time I haven't pursued this too much.
Things are getting worse and I need to move sooner rather than later but I'm worried how it will affect things if I leave the family home. I believe I will be entitled to hb for a time while we sort out the house. If I can find someone willing to accept me for a rental (which will be a job in itself) could I simply move out and work on separating the finances?
I will be seeking legal advice but I am trying to save to afford it first

Do you have children?

Yes, two primary aged children.

I don't think it would change your entitlement at all but it might be hard to move back should you wish to?
