I have recently separated but I stayed in the home. All I can say is you can apply for universal credits online. So it maybe worth doing that and see what happens?
I also went to Citizens Advice for more info on one of their financial sessions. Very helpful.
Hi, i am going through a separation process atm too. My partner s salary is way higher than mine hence we never needed any gov support. Now we are still living together (until we sell the house we said) however it is nerv wrecking. I would want to move but not sure how to do about applying for any financial support. Do i have to have a rent contract first? I went on entitled and calculated the benefits i could possible get and it looks like that plus my salary would be enough for myself and my daughter but how long it usually takes from the moment i apply until they accept and give you the money.
