Sorry in advance if this has been asked a lot before but I’m new to this.
My husband and I are going through a nasty divorce and were still living together until our finances are resolved through the courts. I’m coming to the end of maternity leave with no job to go back to and my husband earns a fortune but is unwilling to disclose his financial situation or help me in any way until the court tells him he has too, which could take a very long time. We’re having to live together in very difficult circumstances which is unavoidable but I don’t know what I can do about money? I don’t seem to be able to apply for any kind of benefit because we are living at the same address, and I can’t get a job at the moment because we have no childcare. Has anyone been in this situation with any advice?
I’m in the same situation as you, it’s like I could have written this myself.
We have been going through our divorce since February, we exchanged our financial disclosure in June & our FDR is not until November.. it’s a long process when you just want to do what’s best for you your children.
I also didn’t think think I would be entitled to anything given that we live together but I am & I have applied. Please do, or call citizens advice or gingerbread the people I’ve spoken to have been amazing.
