No idea but I'm bumping this because we've decided to seperate this week too and I also have no idea. I want to know at what point can I start claiming single council tax and working tax credits etc. I don't want to wait until he's left to apply because then I'm guessing I've got weeks of waiting for it to take effect but also don't know if I can apply now whilst I'm waiting for him to move out.
Hi, I've been through it. Yes, you need to get good advice. I can recommend a great 'Mckenzie Friend' if I'm allowed to through the site. They are not legally trained solicitors but they can help you through the process side of things and give advice, at a much cheaper rate than a solicitor.
Hi, here's a website of a friend I can recommend. His website is www.mckenzie-friend.info . Have a chat to him in the first instance about your situation. He really helped me through the process and was really supportive x
