This is more than slightly off topic, but recently a lot of women in my support groups have talked about either divorcing their spouse or their spouse asking for a divorce. The ones whose spouse request a divorce are taken completely off guard and are especially distressed. I’m going to create a page about this when I have a moment, but in the meantime I found a great resource that includes information about divorce in all 50 states. It has lawyers you could potentially contact, but does not push you into doing so. If you would prefer to do the research on your own they provide all the information you need.
I hope it helps. When I finish with the page it’ll be more comprehensive. It makes me more than a little sad to think about everyone going through this major life event having no idea where to begin.
Update: The page is up! It didn’t take as long as I thought.
