Hello everyone, new here, just after a bit of advice on what to do next, myself and my husband have just agreed to separating, he’s going to stay till he finds somewhere else, he pays the rent and a few other bills, when he’s not I will be. I’m a bit lost on the next step, I’m a stay at home mum with 3 children, i recieve tax credit and child benefit, but that’s all. I will be looking for a part time job soon that I can do when kids are at school. As far as the benefits side go I don’t want to rely on them but for the moment I will have to, who do I contact first, I’m lost.
