I have a 7 year-old that has just return to school and is settling in well. After 15 tumultuous years I am ready to file for divorce. I have retained an attorney. All I need to do it give the word and they will start the paperwork with the courts. But, should I wait until after the holidays? I honestly can't live like this anymore. If it was just me I would file tomorrow. But, I am worried about my child. I will most likely move out and will have my child come with me due to certain scheduling issues. I feel no time will ever be a good time, but I want to make this as painless as possible for my child. The tension in the house is palpable. I can't stand being in the house when my husband is home. I take care of my son all week (husband works until late in the evening) and then I work all weekend so he cares for him. After work on the weekends I don't want to go home because he is there. I do errands, take walks, go park the car and listen to music until early evening then I go home to help my child get ready for bed. I just can't live like this anymore. The arguing is getting worse, we don't speak to each other unless absolutely necessary. We are silent roommates at this point. And advice or input would be appreciated.
