My husband and I have decided to separate. It's a long story but so far we are being very amicable. We are having to live together for now as for the last 2 years he has been a full time dad to our 2 children and therefore has no income. In an ideal world, he will move out and the kids and I will stay in the house but he'll keep looking after the children while I work. BUT he cannot get any financial support from anywhere because he won't have the children living with him. He cannot claim jobseekers because he doesn't have enough NI contributions and he cannot get housing support as the children will be living with me. I just don't know what else we can do. We want to live apart but without him fighting me for custody of the kids and the house I'm not sure what choice we have. Please is there anyone out there with some words of wisdom or advice for me?
