Food in divorce! was created by skinny lizzy
My husband still won't move out, we have an 11 year old daughter. He still maintains the house but has now stopped me having any food he buys and uses it only for himself and my daughter - is this right, surely this isn't maintaining the home as he's changed the way things were always done.

Can anyone advise as my daughter is quite upset that when we should all be sitting down for meals, he only puts food out for himself and my daughter. I've asked if I can have some and he's said no!

Regards

B

You're separating/divorcing, you no longer are a family unit and shouldn't be behaving like one so making meals separately is one of the easier tests/reasons that can be put on the petition. Likewise if you ware wanting to start claiming benefits as a \"separated\" person it helps your stance

On my divorce petition it stated that we lived separately in the same house, that we both had access to the kitchen and bathroom but nothing was shared and that food and laundry were dealt with individually. I was advised to put this as the marriage could not be said to have broken down irretrievably if we continued to act like a couple. It sounds like your husband has received the same advice.
