Just kicked hubby out and I’m on my own with two children and no family nearby. What should I do please? Mainly worried about rent and food, short term goals until I figure out long term what we will do. Thanks xx
Realistically probably see a friend, exercise go for walk with/without children . Have a long think if you made the right decision or not and if your relationship can be sorted out. Have hese lockdowns had a part to play as its a strain for a lot of people and tests relationships to the max.
Thanks so much for your reply. We have worked very hard but feel like I am out of **** now. I have work to keep me busy but doesnt help he will be there too. I think he wants to make a go of things but because he has the main wage I hate thought of asking him and feeling in debt to him even though I know this is silly as he is providing g for his kids. Do I need to register with anyone or will I be struggling for months before they even consider you? Just want to know what to expect as with poor credit I’m unable to take any loans out to sustain us xx
You should be able to claim universal credits and council tax ( single person allowance) , child tax credits and possibly an advance if you are eligible, If its private rented or council some of your rent should get paid as well. If its a mortgage not sure how that would work. A local citizens advice bureau should be able to help. Also if you split long term you would get child maintenance as well.
If you are working you would be topped up so you would be a bit better off
If you are worried about bills, you need to work. The answer is trite and obvious. The work will relieve you from mental suffering, will give you confidence in yourself. You should not solve his problems, think that you can change it. It depends only on the person. Spend time with yourself and your children, they will always be there for you, will support you, and will not have any doubts.
