Re: I need an exit strategy

I'm sorry you are going through this.

I agree with other suggestions. You need an attorney. Do all of your homework and planning, don't tell him anything or let on. I only told my ex- the day after my attorney filed the divorce papers. She made a new will for me; power of attorney to my sister, etc.

You are entitled to half of the joint funds. I moved funds into an account in just my name right before I told him that I was filing. Start putting away some cash. I would get cash back every time I went to the grocery store.

Remove your personal valuables, make copies of all financial documents,

make sure you have everything set up for yourself, then file and then tell him.

Good luck!
