Won't Agree to Separate - Now What?


#1

I have repeatedly asked my husband for a divorce. We go through the motions of moving forward then he stalls and says no. Over and over. I am so sick of this. I am not going to move out with the two kids. He travels constantly so I just asked him to get an apartment. He says no. What are my options? Do I have any options or must I just stay married? Very frustrated at the moment. Thanks.

You have the ability to move out, which will begin your separation period. I would go ahead and consult with an attorney to discuss the logistics of this, and whether you need to simultaneously plan to file for spousal support. If your spouse is ignoring your attempts to move forward with divorce, you may need to file a lawsuit to get his attention and force him to respond.
