My husband left last week and I'm finding it hard to pick up the pieces. He left without a word of warning, I just got a TEXT. A text for heaven's sakes telling me that he'd found a "new woman" and I would be hearing from him about child support and divorce. It was a big shock to say the least, I'd thought we had a loving marriage but obviously I was wrong.
Since he's left I've started re-setting up my business (I gave it up when I had my third child but luckily still have customers who are happy to go back to buying from me) and so financially I can take a deep breath but I don't know WHAT to tell my children. I'm upset too, I have 6 children and they are my life. They keep asking when they'll see daddy and I tell them he's gone away for a while but he's informed me he will not be returning. When I asked about the children he said he would be sending child support. I am shocked at his audacity, I'm not believing it at the moment.
I don't know what to do or what to tell the children. What can I tell them? What can I do? How do I disassemble my life almost? Papers? Finances? Joint bank accounts? I'm so confused and out of sorts.

Get a lawyer quickly! LIKE NOW!!!!!
Be honest with the kids as others have said... they are in this too. Maybe set up some counseling for you, and for you & the kids!!
But get a lawyer on your side ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!
