Given your STBX's mental state, hard to foresee smooth sailing and rational discussion. YMMV, but I'd want an attorney's guidance.

Hope it works out...

Fair enough. I do have access to legal consult through my company's EBP. But as I said, I just want things done.

As of yesterday, I moved out to my dad's farm, I still need to get most of my crap out of the house, but perhaps some space will let her calm down a bit...

That is a big step... I glad you found a place to go without committing to a long term lease.

Just my two cents...

Yeah...I wanted to get an apartment, but it's just not viable right now...and it's not like a 45ish minute commute is the end of the world. I have plenty of coworkers who've driven further that that every day for years. I'll survive a month or two of it.

I guess my biggest hesitation was having to admit to my dad that I done screwed up. My adult siblings have lived with my dad for various periods of time (years in one case), and I was desperately trying to be the only one who had his...stuff...together enough to avoid it.

Take your Dad out for a big steak and say thank you.

I wouldn't worry to much about your perceived "I screwed up" theory. I'm sure he doesn't see it that way.

I would guess he is happy to help, as well.
