My husband and I have agreed to separate and divorce. We have two children of whom we would like to share custody. We also prefer to have an amicable settlement.
We would like to begin our separation by having one of us move out as soon as possible. However, from what we have read, it is inadvisable for one of us to move out without first consulting with an attorney.
Is this an absolute? What does a mere consultation gain us if documents are not signed right away? (Or are documents signed prior to one leaving the home)
What are our real options for moving forward with the beginning of our separation?
