    Hi @amyjane
    Welcome to the community, Im sorry to hear about your separation, it may be good for you to seek some proper legal advice, you can check out the Law Centre here.

    I can understand this must be a worrying and stressful time for you and though we can give you support, it would be sensible for you to get advice from a legal professional.

    Best asking your local council if there’s any support you could get.

    Picking apart your post
    Is the relationship beyond repair or could some counselling help
    Would the relationship continue if the pressures and stresses were alleviated
    Social services/ NHS

    Also it is easy from personal experience to focus on own disabilities and ignore emotional needs of loved ones.

    hope you get it sorted
