Hello, my name is***** am a solicitor on this site and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Can you explain your situation in a bit more detail?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I got a letter from Hmrc about my tax credit, which I am no longer getting
Expert:  Ben Jones replied 2 years ago.
OK unfortunately it is not something I can assist with. I will therefore ‘opt out’ and a colleague better placed to deal with the nature of your query should hopefully pick this up soon. Please do not reply in the meantime as that will just assign the question back to me and you will experience a delay. Thank you

At this stage all you can do is send them the information they have requested and remind then that you gave them the relevant information at the start.It would be helpful to start the divorce proceedings as a way of demonstrating that the marriage is over - and within those proceedings you can apply for an order allowing you to remain in the house with your child until the child is 18 and forcing him to leaveI hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
