I've returned to studying and I'm a single mother. I've applied for a place through the institution for my son at nursery and they need proof of my lone parent status. What could I use as proof to send to them?

Do you claim child benefit/tax credits? Either of those should have on your letter that you receive them weekly due to being a single parent.

I would ring and ask but I'd imagine they'd want a council tax statement or bills etc. Things that are only in your name.

I'm not sure there is anyway you can prove this?? If you were married and now divorced you could use divorce papers. If you get discount on council tax for being an only adult you could try your council tax notice/bill. Otherwise I have no idea....never heard of this before!

I had this when I did my degree. C tax statement with single person discount did for me.
