My wife had been telling me she wants a divorce for some time and I cannot talk her out of it. She has now set her move out date. Because all of our assets, etc are combined, she is now having second thoughts about the best way to do this. We are a two income family and neither can afford to go it alone at this time. She is now asking me for a legal separation and has said that she will join me in refinancing our house, which she says I can stay in, so it lowers the rate and makes it more affordable. We are in agreement on how to split custody of our child and the separation is amicable. I have been told we cannot file for separation in FL, only divorce. Is that correct? What are the reasons to chose one path over the other. We are not planning reconciliation.
