    Seems like you may be Moving soon?
    In this day and age it seems that more and more people are choosing to get divorced. The divorce rate today compared to that of the 1950s is constantly increasing. I think it is because people just give up too easily on their marriage where as back in the 1950s people did what ever it took to keep a family together. Being a father that is just going through a divorce will find that one of the first steps to moving on is to find a new house to live in. When it comes time to move, with all the stress of the family breaking up, it may be smart to look into hiring a credible company to assist with the move. Make sure you research the company before hiring them. Believe me when I say that it will be worth it to get some help packing and moving all of your belongings. It will be one less thing stressing you out during these difficult times.

    My situation is this, My wife and I purchased a home in Indiana due to company promotion and relocation. After 1 month my wife asked if the kids could go back to her parents for Thanksgiving in 2007. I agreed and we were to travel to pick them up on the Saturday after. On the plane ride back my wife informed me that she and the kids are not coming back. We have battled back and forth. I have now had my full, I want to see the kids but I know we need to divorce, it is going to be complicated. Any ideas?
