You can apply to have your child benefit paid weekly if that helps.
Tell all creditors that you are on your own now. It helps if you get a little behind in payments or anything like that.
Tax credits should send you out another form as you get CTC for the kids(IS doesn't provide for kids anymore)
Apart from that I think you are sorted.
colditz im so sad for you, although I havnt read your threads. Are you a good coper? You sound strong.
Re the CAB
in our area you have to ring and make an appointment first. If you turn up it seems to be a waste of time. They need to have ther right person with the correct knowledge..IYSWIM. (I have wasted a lot of time there waiting!)It is a very small one thou'
thinking of you and dc's
colditz all the best for sorting this out. I don't think the job centre is the correct place for tax credits etc as they are Inland Revenue things - but they should be able to tell you where you do need to go.
Also recommend the CAB to help you sort out what you are entitled to - it's the little things like reducing your council tax that will make all the difference.
colditz - you wont (break down later) as you are getting life organised. You may be sad alot/grieve for end of relationship. This is NORMAL let yourself then move one (and shag anything that moves...)no I didnt really mean that NOR do I mean to sound flipant)
