I''ve been claiming tax credits, however I''m now being told I have to prove he doesn''t live here. As apparently we''re financially linked to each other.
I''ve sent all my household bills, plus bank statements. He won''t consent to removing my name from the joint account even though I don''t use it.

I had this and sent them my council tax bill which was by then just in my name with the discount and copies of solicitors letters showing that we were in the process of divorcing. Didn''t take them long to come back to me and confirm that all was in order.

I''ve sent my council tax bill, I have no Solictors letters yet. If I have to I''ll get one, he''s not co operative.

You can also send bank statements of the bank account you currently use showing it is in your name only.

If you do not use the current account you can phone your bank and advise you are separated - they can freeze the joint account which will force his hand. At the very least make sure there is no overdraft facility on there - if he makes that account overdrawn you could be jointly liable for it

I''ve sent, my bank statements joint account statements. All copies of household bills, plus car and home insurance. I''m worried they''ll stop my money, I''m a full time student which will affect my student loan too.

My daughter has applied for a bursary and the higher rate student loan - we are in Scotland so I am not sure if the bursary scheme would apply to you - it may be worth looking into it.
