Don't know what to do

Dear lovemykids:

Greetings. Moving out of state does not jeopardize any of the marital equity in property you own with your spouse. Be sure that you obtain a signed separation agreement before you move though. Thank you.

I am in a sticky situation. My husband and I moved to NC less than 2 years ago and opened a business. We have poured every dime we have into this business (which includes a house for us to live in). We separated a couple of weeks ago. I would like to move my children to Virginia to be near my family and to give them opportunities that this very small town does not afford. My question is: what would my moving do to a divorce settlement involving the business? If we sold it, would I jeopardize my right to half of the proceeds if I move out of state? At this time my husband says he will not fight me on anything, but I need to know where I stand legally. Thank you.
