Before you do anything else, make a plan.   Don’t move out.  Don’t approach your spouse about a divorce.  Don’t tell your children you are leaving their mother or father.  Don’t move out of state.   Don’t take all of your money out of savings and put it in a shoe box.   Don’t do any of these things without a plan in place.

How do you get a plan?  Simple.   You meet with a professional who knows knows the law and who cares about your situation, make a plan, and make it happen.
