I filed for divorce yesterday and he doesn't know... *UPDATE* *UPDATE 2*
I filed for divorce yesterday and my stbxh doesn't know. I was sick of him telling me he wanted to fix things and then not trying so I went down and filed yesterday. I hope they don't serve him at work. We work at the same place and nobody there needs to know our business.
So I got my divorce paperwork in the mail today. I filed on Monday and the lady told me that it would take 2 - 3 weeks for my request to waive the filing fees was even looked at so I was really counting on that time since I still have to work with him until the second week in August... Now he is going to get the paperwork most likely today and he has our daughter this weekend... I'm freaking out right now! I called a lawyer to see how much she is for a retainer but I may just end up going it alone. Any advice? I didn't even tell the kids yet because I didn't want our daughter to blab to him that I had already filed the papers. Uggggg!
So I got a call from him at a few minutes of 10pm. No one at his house had checked the mail yet. He didn't yell or scream or freak out like I was expecting. He said he thought things had been getting better between us over the past few weeks even though they haven't improved in the least. I'm not positive but I'm pretty sure he was crying when we got off the phone...
