    congratulations on your pregnancy. I was engaged to my partner when I had my little girl and I made the mistake of giving my daughter his surname. He walked out on us when she was 6 months old and we’ve seen nothing of him since. I am now desperately trying to look into changing her surname so she has mine but it will involve court and is not straight forward. If things are not amicable, from my own experience I would definitely try give them your surname. Best of luck

    Hi there

    did you get anywhere with this as the same has just happened to me on my first payment for universal credit. So I’ve ended up with £24 to live on for the next month.

    If so how did you get it rectified please?

    Thanks so much

    Hey

    So sorry to hear what has happened to you especially whilst being pregnant.

    My ex has just walked out on me and my 7 month old baby and we were like you happy so it has come as such a shock to me too (he’s had a mental health breakdown) but has since left the country and I have had contact since this happened a month ago

    I know it’s easier said than done as I’m struggling quite a bit at the minute but try keep strong. Your baby will have everything he or she needs and be loved just the same by having you as it’s Mummy.

    If you need anyone to talk too or even rant too feel free to drop me a message.

    Hi thanks for the reply 🙂

    My family are being amazing but I totally agree I just need to plan some me times. It’s so hard being a mummy alone 24/7

    Im struggling to work out how much I’ll get from universal credit once I go back to work next year. No one seems to be able to advise on how much I’ll get.

    How old is your little girl? How long have you been a single parent if you don’t mind me asking?  Have you found it gets easier?

    If you’d prefer to message me direct that’s fine 🙂 x
