I'm not a single parent yet but my sons father and I have been having issues for a long time and its gotten to the point where I have decided it is better for us to no longer stay together, we currently share a house and finances and everything we have has been purchased while we have been together.
Our lease does not end until the end of October this year and neither of us can afford to stay in this house alone so I guess I'm wondering what others have done or whether they have been in similar circumstances? We will most likely live together until our lease is up, but what is it like living with your ex (if you have) did it make things harder, easier or just confusing? Any experience with claiming SPP whilst still living with your child's father?
I am hoping we can be amicable about this for our sons sake ideally I would like to talk about the things we each want from our assets and work out something that suits us both its just such a huge change and I know it needs to be done but I'm so scared at the same time
