[Update]One last update to my husband committing suicide and leaving us in debt

Hello everyone. I wanted to give one last update to my situation since so many of you reached out to me. My previous posts are [here]( https://www.reddit.com/r/legaladvice/comments/9rfvil/ohiomy_husband_was_killed_in_a_car_accident/?utm_content=title&utm_medium=front&utm_source=reddit&utm_name=legaladvice),[here](https://www.reddit.com/r/legaladvice/comments/9vvejz/update_post_husband_killed_in_a_car_crash_left_us/?utm_content=title&utm_medium=front&utm_source=reddit&utm_name=legaladvice), and the most recent one [here](https://www.reddit.com/r/legaladvice/comments/9zulbq/update_final_update_to_my_husband_commiting/?utm_content=title&utm_medium=front&utm_source=reddit&utm_name=legaladvice). My location is Ohio.

This has been a whirlwind few weeks. A lot of change, a lot of stress and a lot of hard work. As difficult as all this has been and will still be to go through, I am feeling more positive than I have in months. the legal issues are being dealt with as best they can for the moment and we are looking at filing bankruptcy early next year. It is scary to think about, but I do know it is our best option and things will work out in the end. We moved out of our house almost a week ago. It feels very bittersweet and the girls are having a difficult time but I know they will adjust and I really do think a fresh start will be the best thing for us. The girls are in individual grief counseling and we began family therapy. I will be making an appointment for myself as well, something so many of you encouraged me to do.

Some of my good news now. We were able to find a permanent place to live, with a very sweet landlord who is sympathetic to my situation and has previous experience with the welfare system AND has bent over backwards to help me through all of the red tape. We will be moving, (again!), into the new place at the end of this month. Hopefully that will be the last time we have to move for a very long time!

My second huge piece of good news to update with is that I got a job! I am now working full time in an office of a company that is owned by someone I met through my posts here. She contacted me after my last update and offered me a trial run with her company. I started this past Monday and so far, so good! I am incredibly humbled and grateful to her for giving me a chance. That brings me to my third point and really the reason I am making this update.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first reached out for advice here. I just felt so overwhelmed with the situation and I think I was just mostly wanting to not feel alone and to connect with and talk to people who had some understanding of what I was dealing with. The response I got from all of you has been astonishing. The advice, the stories of dealing with similar circumstances, the encouraging messages, the fact that you all literally [saved Christmas for me and my kids](https://www.reddit.com/r/pics/comments/a2kjv1/this_is_what_a_reddit_hug_looks_like_i_reached/?st=jpd1zdgp&sh=63fffee4), A NEW FREAKING JOB, and just the empathy and kindness you all have shown to me and my family is so far beyond anything I expected that I don’t even know the words to express how grateful and humbled and loved it has made me feel. It is going to be a long, tough road, but I have total faith that things will be okay and that is in large part due to the r/legaladvice community.

**So in closing, I want to say THANK YOU to every single person who reached out me in any way, shape or form. Thank you for lifting us up and helping us through this. You guys have saved me in a million different ways and I will always be grateful. I hope you all the have the Merriest Christmas ever!**
