I’m hoping someone here can give me some advice.
I have had a truly horrible 15 year marriage to an absolute bully and narcissist and I have finally decided enough is enough..
The house was put on the market and sold very quickly and I have applied for a divorce on the government website.
I am due to retire in March.But I think I may have to continue with my little part time job for the time being..
After everything has been paid, i will have about £90,000 from the sale of the marital home.
Obviously that will not buy me another home and I’m struggling to rent anywhere. There is very much in my area and I have a little dog which isn’t helping.
My daughter said that I could go and live with her, but she is seriously overcrowded already, and I would have to sleep on her sofa indefinitely.
I am absolutely terrified that I’m going to be homeless. All my possessions are going to have to go into storage which is extra cost.
I contacted the local council to ask if they could help with social housing and they said to fill out all the forms, and if I was accepted, I could possibly apply for sheltered housing.
Which I found a bit odd because I have no need of sheltered housing at all I am in extremely good health. I’m guessing it’s because of my age?
I wondered if anyone here has any suggestions if you’ve been through the same thing at this late stage in your life?
Oh and I don’t regret my action, In going for a divorce I didn’t want to live what remains of my life with somebody who makes me afraid and anxious.
