Married 10 years, two children. Had no idea that he was screwing a girl from work (who also was engaged) until speaking to the detective on the case (he didn't admit to that but the texts they have...). He confessed to giving her his pills & she died of an accidental overdose. Not being charged with manslaughter or murder, charged with a second degree felony (right now, since she was a druggie). In light of his lies, and continued lies, I cannot stay with him. For my sons sake. I'm pretty sure he's headed for jail. Will him being in jail effect me being able to divorce him? I didn't think of divorce before, and I'm in over my head. I need my sons to be safe and mentally shielded from the brunt of this. They didn't deserve this. Thank you.
This type of question cannot be addressed properly on the Internet. You need to make an appointment with an attorney for a face to face visit. Good luck.
