Re: Wife left my girls and me for a coworker
I know that you are hurting and that emotions are raw, but you have a window of opportunity that you need to take advantage of before it is too late. She wants the OM right now and will do what it takes to accomplish that mission. Consult with an attorney and get the ball rolling on divorce, visitation and finances. If you have been married for 10 years, she probably is entitled to part of your retirement. I would have her stipulate in the settlement that she waives that right, in return for a quick divorce. You don't have to be her buddy, but don't be intentionally mean before the papers are signed. Actually, you need to treat her with a certain amount of respect to her, not because she has earned it, but for your daughter sake. Moving quickly should give you an advantage, don't mention the food stamps, but save it as a chip to use in court.
