My husband and I have decided to separate. I won't go into all the details or reasons because it is irrelevant, I just have a few questions. I know I need to speak to an attorney, but since I can't do that today I figured I would see if anyone was around to give me some general info.
He will be leaving and I will be staying in our house, since I have a two-month-old and nowhere to really go. But I can't afford the house on my income alone. I know he will have to pay some type of child support, but I'm sure that can take a long time to work out. Is there anything I can do in the meantime to ensure that he helps out, or is that not his problem? I'm thinking he will probably be willing to anyway for DS's sake, but you never know in this type of situation.
Obviously my main concern is my son. With a child so young, what type of visitation is normal? I can't imagine breaking his routine every weekend or anything like that. Not to mention that I can't imagine being away from him.
I feel so terrible because I keep thinking I am ruining DS's life. I don't know what we will do financially. And I feel like his life will be more complicated. But, in the end I know this is the right thing, and my happiness is more important than money or what people think. I just hope someday he will understand.
