A: You can't dissolve the marriage unless both parties agree on all details. He doesn't agree, so file for divorce and ask for occupancy of the premises, temporary spousal support to pay household expenses, and child support. Use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain a local divorce attorney to discuss the situation, division of marital assets such as the house, etc.

A: I agree you need to file for Divorce and seek temporary support orders. In most states, including Ohio, you cannot go backwards on support, so file soon. You should consult an attorney in your area for advice considering all your issues.
