    Hi, im new to the forum and Im really hoping someone can give me some advice.  my boyfriend and I split up just before I had my daughter. Its been so stressful with no support or money. i took the full 12 months maternity leave so am now on universal credit but i have to go back to work in a couple of months.  i had to claim child maintenance through CSA as my ex refused to pay anything.  ive always worked but to go back will cost bout £250 a week which is about how much I earn at work.  He is saying he wont pay anything towards this and ive got no idea about benefits. im hoping someone on here can tell me maybe what i could claim. i really want to only work a couple of days cos i dont know how im going to leave my daughter weve been on our own during the whole covid nightmare. can anyone give me any advice? I appreciate it.
