I’m totally clueless on how I’m going to survive being a new single parent.
My boy is 1 and since he was born I’ve realised that my partner (his dad) is not a good dad and I want out. The problem is my partner has all the money and I have absolutely nothing, we’re not married, it’s only his name on the house (mortgaged) and he’s always been the one to pay the bills. I’m still on maternity leave and my job before maternity leave was part time working for his company – my car is even a company car so that will be taken away (he’s joint owner) So I won’t even have a job at the end of all of this! I have no savings to be able to buy my own car for example, but thankfully no debt.
How on earth do I survive from this? What do I do first? Find my own job so that I can have my own wage again? I’m petrified I’ll be homeless. I just don’t know where to start. I have no friends or family that are able to take me and my son for a while.
I don’t want to rely on benefits as I do in time want to have my own wage but with a 1 year old who hasn’t started nursery yet, I’m not in a position to go job hunting. Is there any short term help i can get?
