I just want to be alone.

I have checked out of my marriage completly.  I don't respect my husband and he has no respect for me. There is nothing really wrong, I am just miserable.  We have two children, they are 9 and 5.  I am the sole provider and I make $16 an hour plus commission.  I can afford to take care of our boys entirely on my own.  My company is opening a new branch in Kentucky and I have been asked to apply for the management position.  If I were to get it, I could move and be out of the state and out of his life and start fresh with the kids.  What do I need to do to get the process started?  Has anyone been through this?

You would need his permission to move out of state w your children. He has a day whether to allow you or not

With that being said. You need to file a separation. Some states require you to be legally separate before they grant a divorce

He wouldn't do anything about it, and he wouldn't have the funds to fight me on it.  He never even signed our first sons birth certificate.  What would happen if I just left?

File the appropriate paperwork first then leave.

He still has the same rights just by being married to you, regardless of him signing or not signing the bc.

File for divorce and make sure you put in the paperwork that you want sole custody. This way you're covered and it's up to him to do something about it.

You need to meet with an attorney.  Good luck!

Will that really work?  He would actually have to take me to court to stop me from moving, right?

I am meeting with one on Friday afternoon.  I just don't know what to expect and I am afraid that I will be told I can't leave the state.
