Due to abandonment and alienation of affection, I am moving out after 20 years of marriage. I must separate myself for the sake of my health, both physical and emotional. There are no plans to pursue divorce at this point. There are no child custody or support issues. I am not interested in alimony at this point, but if circumstances change I may be, so that may need to be addressed for future. I am hoping for a reconciliation, though not likely. If not, I would like to sell our home, which he will agree to.
The thought of doing my own separation agreement and having it notarized has crossed my mind, but I am not sure how to go about it. If I decide to seek out an attorney to draw up the agreement, how much can I expect to pay? Money is a huge issue for me. I have been out of work for 8 months and will finally be starting a job soon. The issue of our incomes vs. expenses will also need to be addressed.
Thanks for any advice.
