    In the process of separation from my partner and I have 2 children. We have a joint mortgage but am leaving because of domestic abuse. Anyone gone through this and know whether I can claim housing benefit since my name is still on the mortgage. I have left the house and privately renting. I also work full time. Thank you.

    Going throug the exact same thing! You can get housing benefit through accepting emergency housing. If you want to rent somewhere you would be entitled to housing allowance, and be able to get rent bonds from the council to help you to afford a deposit etc.
