Hug 's to you Cassie, I wish I could help you hun, I'm in the same boat even with this new job right now, I just got a paycheck on Friday and the whole thing has gone to Aaralyn's school tuition. Thank God for Marc because even if things don't work out with us I will always appreciate all he's done for Aaralyn and I.

I hope you get things sorted and good for you for going to school, try to keep it up if you can and apply for every bit of assistance you can.

Thats stupid you should be able to use his P45. You should be entitled to income support cause your both studying. Have you been to the Job centre?? You should be able to get a crisis loan, which the money you borrow will come out your benefits when they come through, but its taken weekly. Yes deffo make sure they backdate all your payments, they can be craftly about that sometimes.

Sorry, I would help but just as skint!Have you got family that can help??

Hmmm, as you are on benefits, your housing and council tax will be back dated, personally I would'nt pay them, they can't make you pay if you have nothing to pay with. Be firm with these grease monkeys, no income and benefits will entitle you to housing benefit and council tax benefit...I would go and see your local housing officers asap and sort this out.

Keep us posted.

last yr we really struggled financially hun - and we didnt pay council tax at all for a yr!!! Shocked

dont beleve all this about they put u in jail and blah blah as its rubbish - thats only for those who do it yr after yr... with us we agreed to pay sumthin small like £20/month until wed payed it all (it took well over the yr but it was paid!)

they may be money grabbing inconsiderate things in their high and mighty offices but somewhere amongst them are a few feelings!!

like i said before hun - you need to either fill in the forms or if you desperately need the money actually go to your local council office - every town has one. they will sort u out on the spot and u will be back -dated within a few days rather than a few weeks of waiting for it if u filled in the form! kev works - whereas i dont and we get quite alot in wrking tax and child tax so u will beenbtitled to more than we get (i was also back dated just under a grand last month as i was paid out wrong!) but u need to do it before a certain date this month or else u wont get back dated as it will restartthe new yr and they will start u off then - u will lose alot of what your entitled to!

i say im gonna start early every yr and never do!! haha!! its always a last minute rush a few days before and as everything is usually out of stock my nephews n neices end up with money! why dont u start saving vouchers or something next yr? a couple of quid a week or something? or maybe even that 'park' thing - iv never done that so dont really know the ins n outs of that but its a way to spread the cost n give ur los a great xmas!
