    Hi all,


    I am currently going through a separation from my partner of nearly 6 years, we have a 8 month old son together. The separation has been coming for months to be honest, we haven’t been in a good place for a while! He is very good at twisting words, not listening and manipulative. I recently found out he has been liking hundreds of pictures on Instagram of half naked woman, which to me is disrespectful to our relationship. Some pictures were when I was in hospital with our newborn baby, after having a traumatic birth and a category 1 emergency c section. These are just some of reasons I left him.

    I am seeking advice from a solicitor, we can’t communicate with each other as it just turns into a massive argument. He won’t agree to anything I’m saying, it’s going to be nightmare I think! Currently we are living together still but in separate beds, I haven’t seen him since Sunday as he’s stayed away. Our house is mortgaged under a joint mortgage and we are not married.

    there’s no point to this post other than to vent really, I am really nervous about becoming a single mum, this is something I never wanted to happen but here we are. Any advice please? X

    Hello, just joined this forum and this post jumped out at me immediately. Same as you both, I’m recently separated, I have a 15 month old son, would be great to chat.

    …no idea how to contact you both privately though 🙁
