    Hi all,

    New to gingerbread so thanks in advance.

    I’ve been separated for two and a half years now, I moved out of the family home and luckily back to my parents(at 50😕), My eldest daughter is at college but my youngest is nearly 14, she’s not getting on well with my ex and has said she would like to live with me, this would be great except there is no room at my parents and I can’t afford to rent or get a mortgage with what I pay in maintenance and debts that I took on for the ex when I left, Is there any way I could get social housing for us both to live together or does anyone have any other options that might be available to me please?

    If your daughter lives with you, you wouldn’t pay maintenance. Wouldn’t your wife would have to pay you?

    I’d check on the the CMS web site. You would also receive her child benefit.

    Thanks Kathymumofone👍

    Although I was more than happy to pay for my children etc I’m fairly certain my ex on the other hand wouldn’t be so helpful.

    I’m not sure if I’d qualify for social housing which would help me out greatly?
