Before my ex-partner and I got separated, he used to look after our little one at home while I work during the weekends.
He is not longer with us, since about three months. Our little one just turned 19 months old.
I was abused verbally, psychologically and once even physically.
I don’t want to work if I have to leave my baby girl with strange babysitters as I am struggling to find someone regular, although the nanny earns per hour more than I earn per hour.
If I stop working, or at least I am going to try to negotiate to work only one day per week. Will I be entitled to receive benefits still?
Any guidance will be very appreciated, many thanks in advance.
