Don't even bother quitting your current job, cause that wont bring down the alimony or child support. Judges assume if you were making say $100K/year before, you can do it again. Or else everyone would quit their high paying jobs, get a job at Walmart for $10/hour during the divorce.
For now, just get yourself busy with your kids, hobbies and get your mind off it.
Thanks. The lawyer told me the same thing. I guess I have make beleive for the rest of my life that my brand new car gets stollen once a year, and insurance doesn't cover it
