Just don't know where to start. OH and I have been together 13 years but have been struggling for the last couple of years, but recently things have got worse. My Mum died 6 months ago and he has given me no support whatsoever. He hardly does anything with our daughter who is 7. We never do anything as a family. He hasn't spoken to me for the last 2 weeks and I have just had enough. I want out.
I just don't know where to start........financially, emotionally.....

Feel totally lost at moment.

Take one thing at a time and look at it and ecide what to do

Do you rent or mortgage?
Would your oh move out or would you?
Are you married or partners?
Do you work?
Do you work more than 16 hours?
Do you get Tax credits?
Have you looked at entitledto to see what financal help you would get for you and your dd?

Emotionally - will you feel that a weight has been lifted without an atmosphere?
Your dd will adjust if you both support her.
Look into mediation for you both to have a civil seperation/divorce
