[quote]Hi!! I'm new here, just found the site tonight. Long story short... I've been married 21 years and have 4 kids (20, 19, 17 & 13). I have never really been happy but have stuck around while the kids were young. Well, they are all old enough to understand now and I actually have 2 of them on my side. I've got enough money to put up a retainer now and am getting ready to call the laywer soon. I think everything will go pretty smoothe except I think he will try and fight me for the house. I think we have to live apart for 30 days but don't know how thats going to happen because I'm not leaving the house and the kids. How do I get him to leave so that everything can get going? Any ideas would help.

Thanks [/quote]

I understand what you mean by having the older children on your side. After a long marriage, the decision to divorce becomes a a family decision and I've see adult children actually negotiate the divorce agreement. The reason is plain. The parents want to be fair and especially want the children to know they were fair.

As for him not leaving the house, your best bet is a temporary order giving you exclusive use of the house until a final resolution. In essence, one of you buys out the other (if the buyer can refi) or the house is sold and the proceeds divided.

Good luck
