    Default How do I leave my partner?

    I hope I've put this in the right area.
    Im after some advice on how to leave my partner. I know I want to leave & I know I'll be better off in the long run, but how do you leave?
    After 14 years together I have nothing, including no job. I left my job when I was 12 weeks pregnant after having previous m/c and have been home for the last 2 1/2 years.
    I don't know where to start?
    Any advice would be most appreciated.

    Hi Hun, first thing to do is contact Centrelink and child support, you'll be entitled to single parent pension, family tax and maybe rent assistance. Not sure what state you live in but there's a rental scene called NRAS that offers reduced price rentals for eligible people, eg single parents. Also make sure you have good support from family and friends. Good luck xx

    Hi @Rreg, I've only just read your post. No I haven't left. I went into Centrelink to see what kind of assistance I could get, mainly with study or finding a job & they said I wouldn't need to because my kids are under 6 they also said because we have our own home I wouldn't get rent assistance or housing & I should apply for living under one roof allowance. I don't think that would work. Anyhow some times you've got to way these things up & see if it's not worth just putting up with things for a bit longer. I often wonder how many people, men & women stay in relationships because it's just easier for the time being. Hope things have worked out for you 3Rreg.
