Hi. I’ve literally just joined. My partner of 7 years walked out last night. Apparently he has had no feelings for me for the past year. He is already talking to solicitors to ‘get his house back’. We have a joint mortgage (one that I can’t afford on my own) and I have 2 children from a previous relationship. I am completely lost and have no family in this country. My family moved to Spain many years back. Although my parents are able to support through FaceTime, it’s not quite the same. Could really do with a ‘friend’ who knows how broken I am right now. I’m not even sure how to keep a roof over my Childrens heads. I am disabled and can’t work. Also my son has autism, adhd and a few other diagnosis and needs me on call.
Very sorry about what you are going through at the moment. If it makes you feel any better, looking at what you have told me, his solicitors will tell him that as you are a parent and disabled you will be entitled to help to keep your home. I have just started to study law with a particular interest in Family law. There are people you can talk to about legalities and help with housing costs etc, though it might be difficult to have face to face meetings in the current circumstances.
Thank you for your reply. I have a telephone appointment with my local authority tomorrow morning to see what my options are. After that I will seek legal advice. I just need to know where I stand in regards to help I could be entitled to as I can no longer work.
The problem is trying to talk at the moment as nearly everything is making me cry. Hate this alone feeling!
