 hi and welcome to the group.

What do you mean your husband is going to leave?.  Where is he going?

Remember to take time for yourself. Don't be afraid to ask for help.

Can you and your husband do any sort of mediation and work anything out in regards to support and custody?  Ask your friends and family for help esp if you need to go get a job. I would try to avoid spending thousands of attorneys fees if you can. Is it an amicable split at all?

 Talk to your family and friends who know you the best and make sure you find yourself a good attorney.  Just because he says you will have full custody it could be an ugly one or  is he the type who just ups and walks out of all responsibility?   That's the crush and stay strong.

Be sure to have everything brought up in the divorce hearing.  Custody, child support, alimoney, taxes, who keeps the house.   Finances next to custody are the two most important things to agree on when discussing settlements.  Work out visitation rights and scheduling.  That would include vacations and what weekends/summer breaks go to which parent.  Seek support from friends and family.  They will continue to sustain you throughout your divorce until it's final.  Allow yourself to grieve.  Divorce is just like a death in the family.   Make sure your kids are okay mentally.  Sometimes kids have a hard time accepting divorce depending on the age factor.

Make sure you have a stress outlet, get some me time, don't be ashamed to ask for help when you need it and deal with issues one at a time so you don't get overwhelmed. Oh, and come here when you need advice or want to vent.
