    Hi all

    I recently separated  from hubby of 8 years. I have 2 children and have been living with his parents as my kids were very close to them. I am now at a point where I feel like they are just as disloyal and dishonest as their son and want to move on. I am waiting for a sum of money to come through from my parents in order for me to buy a place but I really cannot wait any longer and am looking at renting. Does anybody know if there is help I can get with rent etc as I am single parent. I do work full time and earn a decent keep but I don’t want to have to pull my little one out of nursery to escape. Haha.

     

    Tia.

    I’m not sure what benefits you will get because you work full time. I work 21 hours and get working tax credit which pays for nursery . It’s not much because they take wages into consideration

    I have a small mortgage so my wages covers that

    I don’t think you will qualify for housing benefit and renting is really expensive  but there is no harm in asking.

    Do you live near your parents?  I don’t have any everything was one big struggle but I was able to stay in my husbands house as everything was In his name. He is not the father of my child but took us to court to chuck us out even though I paid bills and maintained home while he was whoring.and taking drugs.

    Oh babe sounds tough. To be honest we will have to rent. I don’t wana burden my mum cos she already had my sister who is a divorcee staying with her. So I just want my own place which kids can call home. My dad passed away early this year so I am waiting for some inheritance to come through to buy a place but will have to rent in meantime.

    your husband doesn’t sound very good for you. My husband was the same. Addictions and cheating and all. I feel so free now being out of the marriage like I’m outta jail but just want to settle in my own home now even if I don’t own I can call it home at least.

    Good luck with the move. I live with my little girl . It was huge struggle going to court. I didn’t get much from divorce as my husband hid his money. He lives in a 1.6 million pound house no mortgage . I bought the house from him and we live comfortably but not rich. It’s nice having a garden.

    My little one brings me happiness and it’s nice being independent. My ex is the loser as he has no children.  We were married for 25 years and I had 3 miscarriages but he enjoyed going clubbing and drugs so good luck to rubbish
