    How do I take the first step with no income?

    My husband doesn't take me seriously when I tell him I want a divorce. For years I've asked him & he'll just laugh it off and say it's just something I'm going through and the feeling will pass. Well I'm fed up. I want to show him I'm serious! I want pack all of my thing and just leave. I have enough money to move the problem is the source of income. Every time I call about a house they ask me "What's your source of income." I get quite. I have no job, I'm a stay at home mom. If I move into a house I will I go about providing for myself & my kids?

    Dear PrettyRoze,

    Most US communities have service for women and children to aid in getting support, jobs & housing. Call your local county offices, and tell them you need help to secure a job and housing. You need to get those things in order.

    Love,

    how old are your children? you might have to bite the bullet and find a job. Consult an attorney, your husband is responsible for the children and also a roof over their head. You may be entitled to more than you think....

    You need to either be able to qualify for a shelter or you are going to have to get a job, but in the meantime, do you have a friend or relative whos house you can crash in while you look for a job?

    Please do not move out with the idea of proving something to him only to move back in...if you want to end your marriage for real and forever- you can insist on him going to counseling with you, or if he won't, go yourself if he has insurance coverage. Either way, building a case to help show you are serious will help you and during this time you can learn what you need to do to end it.
