Shite I need help despertley.

Dh and I split a good few weeks ago, never updated tax credits as this was the last thing on my mind.

We only got CTC so no real need to panic.

Called them today to update my details as now I will be the only parent with my 3 kids. They said that we need to close down the joint one- fair enough and RE CLAIM again for me and the kids!!!!!!

This could take weeks and I explained this is my only income at the moment until pay day at the end of the month so really would be up sh1te creek.

How long please does it normally take to sort out the claim?? Is it quicker over the internet or by post??

PLease help i am a wreck and really dont need to have this too.

i thought that they could do it over the phone and then send the forms out to you for confirmation. so they started it staright away???

i rang last week to update details and got money this week. i don't know whether a full re claim would take longer.

Just worried it will take weeks/months to sort out
