Hello and thank you for your question. I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practicing lawyer in England with over 10 years experience.
May I ask whether your partner has their own home and in any event is the intention that he moves in permanently with you? Does he have income of his own?
No he does not have his own home. He works 40 hrs week gross pay 283.20 Net pay 249.34. My payments are 112.63 rent paid. Income support 140. fortnightly. Child tax credit 60.00 Child benefit 20.000. I have to pay a;; utility bills inc. council tax. Hope this helps.
Thanks. Finally does he have any children of his own that he intends to move in with him?
No but he is my childs father
Thanks. If your partner is to move in with you so that you live together as a couple then this will impact your means tested benefits. The law places a legal duty on you to notify the benefits office of your change of circumstances and upon notification they will reassess your entitlements adding his earnings and savings to your own.
It is important to note that it does not count as living together if your partner just spends a lot of time at your house or spends several nights a week for example providing he can prove he maintains a separate home. What is required is that you actually are living together as a couple in order to be treated as such
However where this is the case as in your proposal, the impact on your benefits will need to be considered as part of your financial planning.
You can get a good idea of the likely impact his moving in with you would have by using the following service - you would need details of his savings and income in order to do so - the latter you already have.
Well I am sorry to say this is a very poor answer as it is common sense yo do as you say but was looking for help with figures to help to decide to go ahead. You have told me what I already know. I now feel justified in requesting my refund due to such a poor answer
I am sorry you feel this is a poor answer. I note you would like actual figures. I can carry out the calculation for you but it would require you providing a great deal of sensitive financial information on an unsecure forum
The are in truth better tools freely available online that can give you a detailed breakdown such as that above.
My recommendation would be that you consider using one of those tools rather than having me perform calculation for you. Would you like me to request a refund for you?
yes please I would like a refund
No problem. I will ask customer services to process this for you. They will be in touch usually within 24 hours to confirm. I hope you find the above website useful and good luck setting up home together.
I am sorry you have chosen to rate my service as poor. Unfortunately I can no longer assist in these circumstanes. I suggest you contact customer services yourself.
