    Hi there,

    I’m new to this as just about to go through a breakup. I can’t stay in what has become a toxic relationship any longer and think the atmosphere in the home must be rubbing off on my little children, even though they seem fine. I can’t bear the idea of spending another Christmas and NYE in a resentful, loveless place. What I’m really worried about in the short term is money. I’ve done the online calculation things and once I can get universal credit coming in, on top of my small earnings and maintenance we should be ok to stay in our rented house. I just don’t know how to manage between getting my husband to leave and getting money coming in. Not even sure how to get the ball rolling and applying but I guess I should be able to find that out quite easily. Does anyone have any advice? Do you know how long it takes to get benefits set up? I’d really appreciate any insights or info as I’m feeling pretty overwhelmed. Thanks so much x
