I am planning to take the kids out of the country to visit some friends this year.  I am just starting the divorce process....should I apply for passports now or wait until divorce is through?  We will all be changing our names at some point as well.  Thoughts?

Married, separated, divorced - if his name is on the birth certificate his name has to be on the documents to get a passport.  You cannot do this legally without his permission.  Even if he is dead you have to bring in some proof.   

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
