If you are considering whether to end a relationship, it is important to remember that there is no right or wrong way. What is important is to consider what is right for you. Deciding to end a relationship has important legal, financial and housing issues that need consideration.
Children – Think about what are you going to tell them. What arrangements will you need to make for them?
Finance – Think about what your financial situation might be if you decide to separate. Do you have to go back to work or will you be eligible for government help?
Housing – Do you need to find alternative living accommodation?
It is important that even if you are on good terms with your partner, that you explore all your options and that you have access to good quality information.
