Happy Mother's Day to all the moms here.
Not a fun Mother's Day for me. My dc is studying overseas, will finally see him this summer...
I need advice: I am finally leaving a nightmare marriage (emotional, verbal and financial abuse) there is a very strong prenup and I get nothing. DH knows he's in a position of strength. He said he would "move me back to NYC" (which we left right after getting married) and sign a lease for one year. The lease was signed just 10 days ago, so I started to look to plan the move, which he had said he would cover. But now he's changed his mind and I have to figure this out too: The move would be very expensive, I was quoted over 6000, even if I have only 2 pieces of furniture. Financially, I have very little, I sold my car and that is to cover these next expenses, so need to figure a way to save.
I need to be in NYC in a few weeks. I can let go of the few pieces of furniture I have, but have a lot of "stuff". My question now is this: do you think I would have an option to safely ship many boxes, through UPS or Fedex with my things? I have never done this before, I wonder when they get to NYC if building won't mind... it's not a traditional move, but I may have no other choice. The 2 pieces of furniture have a strong sentimental value to me. But I am trying to wrap my head around the fact that now I just need to be out of this situation, the past years have been a rollercoaster - I believe I will feel better once back in NYC.
Anyway, thank you for reading, thank you for any advice.
