Proof of Separation letter for student loan was created by dragonfly23
My son is starting university in September 2016 and I have been asked for proof of separation otherwise he will only receive the minimum amount which would be financially disastrous for both of us! Council tax bill is out of the question as he is 21 and therefore I am not entitled to single parent allowance. I have offered utility bills, rent info which shows just my name but its not enough. So, after days of phoning around I have managed to find a local solicitor who will let me swear an affidavit for a small fee. BUT, I have to prepare the wording myself beforehand. PLEASE can anyone advise what wording I should use. Have tried Google but its not making any sense :unsure: Any suggestions would be great. Thanks

HI I'm sorry I do not have any idea what you should supply, but I supplied a letter from my solicitor with our agreed separation date - but I am in Scotland so this was made very clear in correspondence.

If you have tax credit awards could you not use that paperwork?

If you are on a low income don't forget to check the university for additional scholarships - my daughter has discovered she qualifies for a housing bursary which is really going to help.

When did you separate?
Are there any proceedings under way?

For the affidavit , I would suggest something very simple just confirming the date of separation and say the marriage has broken down irretrievably and divorce proceedings will take place as soon as practicable. (This may be after two years separation). You may also want to confirm that your stbx is living elsewhere.

That should be fine. If you need extra reassurance why not ask the student finance people precisely what they need you to tell them.
