I never have but when my ex threatened to move back into the family home when I was not working and it was before UC, I was on JSA at the time, I talked it over with the job centre and they said as long as I can show that we are not living as a couple such as not making meals for each other, not going out together as a couple, not doing his washing, sharing a bedroom, nothing at all that a couple would normally do then I should be alright to continue claiming as a single parent. The rules from JSA have pretty much carried over to UC so I don’t think you would have much of a problem but it might be best to give them a ring and explain your situ.
