In order to start the divorce, you will be required to separate. It makes sense to contact an attorney and prepare all the paperwork including a motion for interim custody. You can file these documents in order to coincide with the timing of your move.

Yes, you can get an apartment, but only after getting the approval of a Court to do so. To do so you should go to Family Court directly or start an action for Divorce and ask the Supreme Court for permission. You will have to show a justifiable reason other than you're miserable being with someone you no longer love or want to be with. You will have to show the Judge some legitimate reason for asking to take those children away from their father too. Speak to an attorney directly about this as soon as possible if you want to get it done. Good luck.
