    Sorry to hear about the job. UC will backdate your payment from the 25th. I would suggest to apply for an advance – the portal is straightforward and money was paid into my account in 4/5 days. I hope that helps.

    ok cool.

    I was anxious too – the only thing I could do was to check 5 days before payment on the portal. Sorry, if you already know this πŸ™‚

    Hey, I didn’t use the calculator but guidelines say for every pound you earn 63p is taken off. Hope that helps x

    Hi, I agree with Helen’s advice. Our school has a great counselor and so we made an appointment to see he first. He explained and went through how we both felt about where we were in the split – I guess some middle ground would be helpful. He also asked if our own parents did split what would you have liked them to say to you. It seems such a simple question but I’m sure all of us will know what to say. Keep it simple the questions will come later. x

    Hi, Theresa,

    Just wanted to say you you’re not by yourself, many of us are feeling anxious and alone especially in these times – you are going to be ok. At the moment I’m just thinking day-by-day – it’ll drive me nuts if I think too far in the future.

    Have you tried mediation with your ex-partner? It might help you both to gain some middle-ground in terms of time split with the kids.
