Myself and husband are living separate lives. He works abroad and is only back sporadically when he is on a shift change but we are starting divorce proceedings (been a long time coming). I was told by someone at Gingerbread or CAB a few weeks/month back now that I could potentially start a claim for UC as a single person living with him (as another separate person – which he is).
Aside from the small (huge!) fact that atm, he pays the Mortgage and Bills and supports me totally BUT I want to break away from this and lead a completly separate live (which is fking scary). As soon as we divorce and I get my ‘settlement’, Im relocating with our daughter (all mutally agreed).
Does anyone have any similar experience i.e of claiming UC while living with a separated partner (temporarily while trying to sort out separate living arrangements)?.
