So i'm in the process of seperating from DH. We have to make some big decisions and i'm pretty overwhelmed with it all.
The biggest thing is deciding what to do with our house once i find some suitable accomodation for him (he has an acquired brain injury). And since i've been his carer for 8 years I will need to seek alternate arrangements as far as he goes cause he can't do it on his own.
Anyways, despite that, i need to secure an option for myself and the boys, we have a mortgage and the amount is pretty exxy, but if i were to rent a house equivalent to ours in this area i'd only be paying $100 less per week, which i'm not sure how do-able would be on a single mums pension anyways.
The alternate is get into full time work asap, i have a degree but haven't used it yet and haven't worked for nearly 8 years, so that's a big hurdle to securing employment. Then i'd have to put the kids in daycare. But i'd do whatever it took so that we can keep this house.
Has anyone been down this road that could give me some advice? I've made appts at various organisations but it's the financial aspect i'm most stressing about.
Thanks for any help.
