I have lived partially with my partner over the last 7 years. By that I mean he has his own postal address at his mothers but stays most weekends,some nights midweek and we holiday together. In the past he has given me money to help with bills etc which he paid monthly into my bank account. He also took out a mortgage for my property to pay off my ex-husbands share in my house. Does this mean in the eyes of the law that we are ''living together''? If so will it affect my tax credits ets for work and my kids?
I had this, well the single, living together issue. If I remember correctly anything more that 3 nights in a week is considered living together. We just stopped ctax credits and single council tax, just incase, would have been alot to pay back.
