Thank you for the post, to be clear, do you want to file for divorce then move out, or move out and determine if you want to file for divorce?
i just want to move out for now but i know when i do he will probably file for the divorce and i dont know if that is a good thing. i've heard that it is best to file first. we dont own a home together. i know his behavior and he will try to turn everything around to suit him.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX leave the home with an objective intent not to return, he could claim abandonment. To combat this, you should state in writing (perhaps in a "Dear XXXXX" that you do not want a divorce, but need some time apart to sort things out or something similar, and retain a copy of the letter for your records).
