After a couple of counselling sessions my husband has had a lightbulb moment and decided that it is easier to throw 17 years of relationship and 2 children down the drain rather than getting to the crux of our problems and trying to fix them... anyway..
how does it all work? Im a SAHM, not been employed for 8 years. I have a second interview next week - yes get me!! What do I do? Is there financial help I can get. I'm totally reliant on him financially. Also he works away. Childcare is £500+ per month. Am I better off working part-time or full-time. What are my rights on the house etc etc??
I'm really not sure what is available to me and how I can best get through this . The children are 4 and 7.

Opinions / advice..?? greatfully received.
Btw, I have a free solicitor appointment booked for after half-term.

Google benefits calculator and you can fill it in as if you are on your own and successfully got the job you're interviewing for, so you can see what you will get in tax credits

Thank you, I've had a look.
Does the law split everything in half?
