Guys,
Have seperated from my partner of 11 years and in a position I have never found myself in until now, and i dont know what to do next? Last week, I had a home, a partner and my kids. Now i know I will be able to see my kids but right now I dont know where to go for help or what to do? I feel as if right now i have nothing but memories and loads of debt to pay back on my own. As the man, i have had to leave the house we have had for the last 6 years and have no where to go? We rent the property from the council and it was always in her name not mine and am told that I wouldnt get help from the local council to be housed as I was not on the tenancy agreement. Unfortunately I am not in the financial position to just go and rent a place to live and to have my children over at. I just need advice on anything that can help and point me in the right direction about getting help and somewhere to live. Do I have any rights? Where can I live? where can i take my children when I have them for the night/weekend/week?
Any info, guidance or help would be much appreciated in this situation I find myself in. Many thanks in Advance

Hi

sorry to hear about your situation.

Speak to Shelter, the CAB and the local council for housing advice. Councils usually have a special team to advise people in immediate need and Shelter's legal helpline is excellent.

Thank you very much for getting back to me. I did speak to the council and they advised about the deposit scheme, but it would seem that right now this is not an option for me as I dont have the money (or enough of it) to rent in the private sector. Also advised that having children doesnt really make a difference to my situation as they will continue to reside with their mum. I am going out of my mind right now with worry and am missing my children and partner and am scared of what is going to happen to me.
