Unhappy Please Help Filing for divorce Mon. how to help 10yr & 6yr old???

Hi everyone,I am in need of some SERIOUS help here.After uears of lying my scumbag soon to be exhusband has finally admitted to having a 2.5+year adultrous affair with my so called best friend,boy who needs enemies???Anyway I want this piece of crud out of my house asap.How and what do I tell our children?Should I wait till he's out?Back in march he was suppose to move out for a while we told the kids and then he didn't go.The scene that played out that day was nothing short of heart wrenching andthe thought of doing this is making me sick.So please any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I would wait until he is acutally leaving.. What to tell them depends on how bad it gets.. I would just say that both of y'all love the kids but you don't love each other anymore and you can't live together anymore. The kids do not need to hear any of the details right now. they are not old enough to really understand all that.
But i would also suggest you start talking to them about things like divorce and how the custody is going to work and stuff like that because the more they know as far as what is going to change in thier lives the less scared of the whole thing they will be.
Good luck with your kids and I hope it all goes well.
