    myself and my partner of 6 years have decided to separate. We have a house and a little boy 2.5 yrs. I’m absolutely terrified of what’s to come as it’s got nasty already. I am financially dependent on him so am totally unsure of what to do next x

    I hope you are feeling a bit better than your first post. Feeling terrified is scary but try to just tackle things one step at a time, you can’t do everything at once.


    When you can check into your entitlements with a benefit calculator and or advice from gingerbread or citizens advice bureau.


    You will surprise yourself on what you can do and get through. It will all just seem very overwhelming at the moment.


    Best wishes

    Hi there Doney99,

    Thanks for sharing your situation with us and welcome to our amazing community of single parents.

    This sounds really hard and we’re so sorry to hear that things are so difficult for you right now. We hear you and you aren’t alone. It’s really important you get the advice and information you need to get through this and make the right choices for you and your kids – you deserve to be safe, well and feel supported. We’ve dropped you a quick email with some contacts so that you can turn to somewhere for further help.

    Take care of yourself and keep chatting with other parents, if you find this helpful.
