    I have been together with my husband for 21 years, married for 11 years. We have a 7 year old daughter and a 4 month old son. He walked out a week ago saying that he does not feel the same way about me anymore. I am absolutely devastated and he has told me he is not willing to work on things, he is not happy and it is over. At the moment he is coming over every day after work to see the children and then leaves when my 7 year old goes to bed. I know my daughter will be crushed about us spilling up and it will be so tough dealing with my baby son as he is so young. We moved to a new house 12 months ago and I’m worried to death how I am going to cope financially but I don’t want to leave the family home. Will I be entitled to any financial help? My heart breaks when I think about my children growing up with me financially suffering and never being able to take them on holiday and do nice things for them. I just can’t see how we can run two households on our wages. Any help appreciated.

    hi,

    so it seems realistically you will only be supporting one household, as you will not be able to manage 2 homes. if your not working, or working, you can check if your eligible for Universal credit. Have you discussed money with your ex? both should still financially support the kids. if he refuses to support the kids, then you could go to the child maintenance service as a last resort.
