I am just separating and have moved out so no paperwork or anything has started. My OH has taken me off the Council Tax and is taking over the utilities … am I weakening my position or doing anything that might bite me later if I get taken off all utilities etc… she’s very money focused and I have a feeling she may want to ruin me/cut me out/significantly hit me financially/time split with the kids …
I literally have no idea about this so any other help or advice would be massively appreciated …
I’m sort of in the position your OH sounds like, but please bear with me! My husband left nearly 3 months ago and, though it was the last thing I wanted, I needed the council tax reduction etc so had to instigate a lot of the stuff you mention. Also for Universal Credit. But there was never any intention of that affecting the time he has with our son.
It depends whether, by money focused, you mean she’s vindictive. I would think they’re separate issues – you would want to provide for your kids (inc utilities), so as long as that happens, I don’t see how she could object to you seeing them. I guess it all feels very raw when your name is removed from a shared account – my ex recently removed me from his car insurance, and it hurt.
The posted guide is helpful, looked at it myself when I didn’t know which way to turn at first.
