    So weve split up and I’m stuffed haha. I’ve sorted UC but can see from checking through the entitled website that it’s going to be no where near enough to cover bills that I currently have. I’m not working, but looking for work. Any advise? Any suggestions on best working hours? How can i make ends meet?!

    Also will be pursuing child maintenance, how much so people usually ask for??

    Thanks guys x

    The CMs web site has a calculator. Usually it is a proportion of your ex’s pay, but also depends how many other children he has.

    How old is your little one? Do you get free childcare? Or school age?  If so, think about being close to school or nursery,

    So you have 6 months to go.  Can you use the 6 months to get some extra skills? Something that’ll help get a better paid job?

    What did you do before you had your daughter?
