My husband filed for divorce today...... and I'm pregnant? Need some advice?

I found out my husband of 5 years is filing for divorce, he's moved his belongings out already & in with the woman he left me for. I'm pregnant with our 5th and 6th child. What can i tell our older kids? They r ages 12, 8, 5, & 3.

Tell them the truth. That their father has decided to move out, and file for divorce. If they ask why tell them they will have to ask him. Even if you think he is being a selfish jerk, (ok, that may be what I think about him) you can not bad mouth him to his kids. He is still their father.

You need to find subtle words to convey the message because something like this could be traumatic. Tell them you are separating from their father, but assure them that nothing much will change and you'll be there for them. Make sure you talk to an attorney for professional legal advice.

you should tell him and see what he wants to do. if he decides he doesnt want to continue,youll get A LOT of money from him for child support because he is the father of your children and a lot cuz you have 6 in total and newborns coming

All I got to say to him is "it is cheaper to keep her!" What a jerk! You poor thing! You and your children! I am so sorry you are going through this! If he seriously wants to leave his well established family for a piece of trash then you are better off without him. I hope he realizes what he had before he loses it completely. Good luck Sweetheart. Hang in there. :0)

i would definitely let him know and file for child support and im so sorry your going threw this but try to get everything figured out before getting farther in your pregnancy so your not stress maybe the help of family and friends will help during this time and i know its gonna be hard to tell your children but maybe having them all together and you and your ex husband talk to the kids together about what will be going on it will assure them that they will always have there parents there for them even when there not together also dont overload yourself with things i would take time to think and organize and schedule doctors appointments and appointments and things needed to be done with a planner that will help u in being prepared before important dates or events if u need anything let me know so sorry good luck and stay strong
