Reply To: My partner left me
Sorry to hear that you are in this situation. Has your ex moved out? if so then yes tell them that you are a single parent and that you have childcare costs.
I am on Universal Credit and I get help with my childcare. they pay upto 85% and the other benefit’s (I’m not sure which as they all come under UC now)
Just focus on one bill at a time and budget. Create a spread sheet and this will give you a clear view of what you have.
When my ex left, I had no idea what money was coming in and going out as he had control over it all. now I know every penny that comes in and goes out.
Good luck and I am here if you want to talk more. but you have got this.
