Hi, I don’t no what to do 1st. Me and my partner of like 15 yrs are separating. I want him to leave but he has no where to go. It’s the same for me and the kids we only have our home. He says he will move out but needs so time. He wants to 1st get a better payed job. He doesn’t no how it’s going to work financially with him having to fund a place to live and still pay half the mortgage. I don’t work and we have a 3 and 6 yr old. Will I get help to be able to still live here on my own with the kids ? Any advice would be great. Thank you x
Hi. A first step may be both of you doing a full financial disclosure so you can work out for sure whether or how you could afford two places, including any benefits you may be entitled to.
That would be a formal part of the divorce process anyway if you ever seek to agree a legal financial settlement (known as a consent order).
I am currently in a similar position- living with my soon to be ex wife, until we can sell the house and afford to separate. It is really horrible being in the same house- I’d recommend finding a way to be separate if you can – do either of you have family or friends with room that can help?
