I am a 27 year old mum to 2 boys aged 4 and nearly 2. My husband left us when I was 3 months pg with no.2. He has recently shown up with the divorce paperwork which I'm finding quite tough!

We had to move house as part of the deal and I am now feeling pretty isolated. I lost most of my friends in the split and am the other end of the country to my family.

I have pretty much reached the stage of wondering if I am going mad so I am hoping to find a bit of sanity and support here!

On that note is there anyone else here who has made all their access/financial arrangements by personal agreement without outside help? Did you get anyone to check it for you? Has it worked ok?

Thanks in advance!

I have no words of wisdom I'm afraid, just wanted to say welcome to a new face . Saying that, my DP and his ex have made private arrangements wrt access and financial support and they have never disagreed over that. Other things yes!

I'm sure you'll find a lot of support on here

Hi glerpi. I'm sorry you're having a hard time. I am in a similar position you have a lawyer to check it for you? For me it does feel strange but really my marriage was over by the summer last year...

I hope you're ok but you are by no means alone
