Shoud I quit job and get benefits? Or better find part time job?
I never wanted to be on benefits but don't think I have other choice

Your ex partner needs to contribute financially too.

I take it you weren't married?

If I were you I would make an appointment at your local citizens advice bureau to see about interim benefits and what help might be available to help you get back on your feet and back to work.

No we wasn't married. He said he will give me 200 each month, but to be honest I don't think I will get it each month. He always has money issues:/
Thank you I will make an appointment x
