I need an affordable house to rent for the kids. 3 bed. SM gets worse I need a 2 bed, I'll sleep on the sofa. SM gets worse I'll wait till kids leave, then rent a cheaper place SM gets worse I'll get a shitty bedsit SM gets worse I'll move back in with my parents.

When dispensing advice to consult a lawyer, maybe these preliminary steps would be a good addendum.
If they do see a lawyer, this prep work will make the 30 minute consultation more valuable and taking these steps may seem less drastic.
"I didn't call a lawyer... just getting ready if I ever feel like I have to. That's not so bad, is it?"
