Hi I hope someone could help. Rather than signing off for good, I am interested in taking the above, to try another employment, spend a bit of time working on my marriage ect and being able to devote more time to our new baby when he/she arrives. I fully intend to come back after this period. Does anyone have any idea of what my chances are of this. I know its not a very widely publicised option. Would the CoC prefare to grant me this rather than me signing off. Any info would be appreciated!
