Hi, I thought I'd finally introduce myself since I've been lurking forever! I finally decided to leave my stbx yesterday and feel good about the decision but terrified!! My husband is not a very nice person and he has a bit of a drug habit. I've let him get away with it for some time now but since he is smoking in the house with the kids and flat out refuses to quit it's time for us to go. I have 3 beautiful children and I think they need to live in a household that has good morals. I have a few questions since I am totally new to this whole divorce thing. First, I was going to try to find a place of my own but I don't have a job right now, I've been a sahm for the past almost 4 years. So when I went to my parents last night to give them the news my mother told me that we could stay there. So that's not a problem. But do I go see a lawyer first before we move? I'm going to go for full custody with visitation so I would like to be out of the house when he gets served with that. He is going to flip his lid. He thinks that I am just going to let him have the kids when he's a drug user. So any advice would be truly appreciated!! Also, can I get a lawyer through the county since I have no income? Please help, I'm lost!! Thanks so much!!!
