my husband put in for divorce today, hes been advised to take his name off billsand joint accounts. Hes got his own business which makes 40k a yr, we have 2 kids, i dont work and at uni. He reckons hes only going to pay me the mortgage which is 280 pm, this is nstead of csa, and he reckons his solicitor said i should go on jobeekers and i wot get spouse maintanence. isthis the case?, how can he put us on dole if he minted pleae please help
the marriage was 8 and half yrs, so no, not a shot marriage. Ive had a free consultation with a solicitor, hes advised contacting the csa and advised to go for interim maintanence.
Ive spoken to child tax and income support, from sounds of things it would not be beneficial to myself to claim income support as i would not recieve the csa, also, because i am a student at uni, they will take my studen loan into account. Child ta credits inform me that they would not takin into account any csa or souse maintance, si this sounds like my best option. I refuse to go on benefit when me and my children have been used to a good quality of life.
thanks for your help, i dont know what i would have done without this site, things are starting to look better. Just found out i can claim more things from local education authority, such as parents learning allownace, which i wasnt entitled to before. Just really worried now that interim spouse maintainence and csa will take ages and have no money coming in only 81 child tax and 30 child benefit. From how its looking, i shouldnt be living in poverty and should be able to maintain the same standard of living once its all sorted out. Thanks for your help.
ps could you ell me if form E is the form for interim spouse maintainance, solictor gave it me before.
