    My partner of 11 years who is the father of my two children told me on Father’s Day that he doesn’t want to be with me anymore. We had a rough patch about a year ago but thought we were working through it. It’s come as a shock and I’m scared. We own a house together and both work full time.
    I’d thought I’d be able to move out and claim benefits to enable me to rent a property for me and the two children. However doesn’t look as though I can do that as the equity in the property means I am not entitled. Not sure if me staying in the guide is the better option.

    Any advice?

    The best advice I can give you,don’t try to co-parent in the same house it’s a horrible situation to be in,because it drags out the process,it looks good on paper for the kids,but it’s not ideal

    Been there myself. Not sure of the circumstances, but when I was in this position we sold out property, I bought a smaller place and then moved into a larger place when i could afford to.


    It’ll all come out in the.wqsh, once you’ve all adjusted and gone through the short term pain of it all.
