Your son is natural legal heir to his father's property. Why your husband has put up such condition is not very clear. Further, apart from police complain you should have filed a suit for domestic violence in court. Take help of some local lawyer. Now it is up to you to decide which option you want to take up.

it depends upon the offer your husband is giving you . if your husband is a millionaire dont agree to accept petty amount . 

you should have filed DV case and claimed right to stay in matrimonial home or alternative accommodation .you can even now file Dv case and seek maintenance and other reliefs from your husband

1. You son have share in his ancestral property.
2. Even if you write non-claimer letter in respect of his property, your son on attaining his adulthood can claim his share. So do not worry on this account.
3. File case u/s 12 of PWDV Act claiming hefty maintenance to bolster your claim for good sum of final settlement amount. Do not negotiate till you get good amount maintenance in DV case.
