    Hi all,

    I’m new here and hoping someone might be able to help me. My daughter is 4, she’s just started school and very happy. Her dad and I had been together nearly 8 years although he cheated a lot and I forgave him a lot. On Thursday I was offered a job at my daughters school however soon after my landlord visited and has given me 4 months notice. My ex and I sat down to work out our finances because we were in a position to buy a property. I then discovered he has gambled away all our savings and I’m talking thousands. Enough was enough, I am putting my daughter and myself first. So yesterday he was asked to leave. Now I don’t know what to do, I don’t even know how to contact the council about housing, I’ll have to claim benefits as my job is only part time. Everything feels a mess and I’m just crumbling. Part of me feels like giving in and forgiving him but I know I’ll never have a happy life with him.
    Sorry for the rant but can anyone help me please?

    Hi Lucy . I’m so sorry to hear about what’s happened. You are right to ask him to leave. he cannot be trusted if he has cheated and lied to you and used all the  savings. You will never be able to trust him and this will continue to make life unsettled for you. You can and will get through this but need some advice..you have got 4 month’s notice which gives you time so contact citizens for advice and find out what you can do. They can advise on housing and benefits and everything else. Take care and sending positive thoughts your way. X
