It looks like my husband and I will be getting a divorce. He basically doesn't want to be a full time dad anymore. In my area, there are not many jobs that pay more than minimum wage, and I am only working part time now as it is. I am thinking about moving 50-60 miles south of where we are at now. It is a small town with good schools but it close to lots of employment in a bigger city. I have put in a few applications and I already heard back from a few. I have been looking at apartments and I have such a cute one, not to far from my best friend. The problem I am having is, my son just started Kindergarten this year. I really don't want to uproot him. He already has problems as it is. I really don't know what to do. Any advice? Have you been in similar situation? What did you do?

If that is your best option for securing a job and a place to live with your child, MOVE. He just started K. He'll meet new friends at his new school and adjust fine I am sure. It's still early in the school year.

Just move during the holiday break in December. Since he just started Kindergarten it’s not like he'll miss a lot. Children are reliant and he’ll be just fine if the transition is done smoothly. GL
