There's no dv or anything I just want to end the relationship. We have 1 child. I'm genuinely at a loss as to how to proceed. Iv been a sahm so 1st step has been applying for jobs today. I'll have to leave the house as I can't afford the rent. What next

Depending on the age of your child, if you end it and he leaves, you will then be able to claim benefits as a single mum including housing benefit. This would give you time to get yourself sorted in terms of work, housing etc.

Are you named on the rent?
Or is it in his name?
Are you married?
Do you have family or friends you could go to for now?

I would start with CAB, see what benefits you would be entitled to and how best to work.
It could be you are better off working 16 hours a week and claiming working tax credits etc....

Why do you want to end it?
Is it something that could be worked on with counselling?
You say no DV. Is that voilence?
Is he abusive in other ways?
Financially, emotionally, verbally???
