Hiya, my 13 year old son is about to come and live me permanently. I’ve always been in his life and have an established relationship between him and all the family. We’ll be moving in to our own house in January but for now he doesn’t have a bedroom because I rent a room from my sister. The situation isn’t ideal but things between him and his Mum have really broken down.
I am totally in the dark about money, benefits, support etc but also anything to do with school and also just what should I be doing for him. I don’t cook very well and I’m really worried I’m going to let him down.
My 14 yr old son has lived with me for 31/2 years , I have never tried to claim for him but last yr I had 6 weeks off work due to an operation, I signed on to universal credit and I told them my son lived with me and they told me I need to show he does by his address at a doctors school or dentist, his school told me his mother will have to change his address but after talking to her she refused so I lost quite a bit of benefit towards my rent . Is there anything I can do? Especially now I’m not working.
