I’m currently working P/T and have 100% care of my 3 children. Ex should be paying child support but hasnt since he relenquished responsibility of them 4 months ago. He has accrued a debt and I doubt I will ever see it.
There is potential that I will be eligible for voluntary redundancy at work. How does this affect any child support (if he paid it) or family tax benefit A or B that I receive? Would I still be eligible for these?
Your redundancy payment won’t be treated as income when working out how much benefits you can get. It will be treated as capital. This means that the amount you get in redundancy payment will be added to any other savings you have.
