When I started my degree I was single mum with one child.
I received full financial help.
After time I started live together with my partner and I become pregnant with my second baby.
As full time student I cannot get any housing benefit- they said it is because I am not single anymore, even I have one 5y old baby and second on the way.
Also I cannot claim Income support- because this type of benefit is only for single parents.
I cannot get Job seekers allowance because I am student.
I cannot get ESA, they said if I can study that mean I can also work.
MY Child tax credit is in process for last 3 month.
My husband is working- so he is paying £500 rent+ £140 council tax, + rest bills, car insurance and everything else and we cannot survive.
We are in so bad situation, that WE Cannot afford to be together, bec when I was single at least I got some help...
After baby I think I will go back to work, but anyway we need help at least for next 3 month... SO what you could advise?
Bolton council said that It was MY DECISION TO MAKE RELATIONSHIPS ;(
