Almost certainly yes, I would say, on the basis of the facts you have given.
However, how much depends on your husband's financial
First question, could you be entitled to Legal help ?
From what you say, you could be. Check out the eligibility criteria on the CAB website ' adviceguide '.
Secondly, you need to investigate benefits as a matter of urgency, and particularly housing and council tax benefit.
See if you can get an appointment with a CAB.
What you are looking at is income support or jobseekers allowance ( probably the former ) and housing/council tax benefit to keep a roof over your head. An application for interim maintenance is a possibility. If you are without income, apply for benefits at the earliest opportunity, it normally can't be backdated.
You may be able to get a free half hour appointment with a family law solicitor who offers to do legal aid. This isn't likely to deal with much more than the legal aid issue, but that is the most important.
You say you are disabled ; do you get DLA ? Could you
apply for it ?
