If you are thinking about leaving the marital home after you get your settlement, you had better get some legal advice from a divorce lawyer FIRST. Do you want the spouse you just left to be able to claim that half of your settlement belongs to him or her? If not, you better do this the legally correct way! Get some legal advice before you pull the trigger on it!
Having said that, I hope everyone has the best possible holiday. I know it is hard when you hurt and are not working. Hang in there.
