I have recently separated from my ex and we have two young children. We do 50-50 custody so they are with us both 3.5 days a week. All of their expenses such as childcare, clubs etc are split down the middle between the two of us.
I spoke to Citizens advice about benefits and they told me that in a situation such as ours what would generally happen is one parent claims Universal Credit for one child and one for the other so you each get your share.
I have found out my ex is claiming for both and looks like she probably wont be sharing. Does anyone have any advice on this situation?
