Hi, I'm in a bit of a predicament right now.
I retook my AS year and I'm over 18. So according to the council there's two adults in the home so while I'm dependant on my mum I can't submit it as evidence.
My mum and dad separated nearly 8 years ago and they never started the divorce process at all as they couldn't afford it. We have contact details though.
So my mum doesn't have divorce nisi or divorce absolut and can't submit the council tax thing as evidence.
They don't live together, my dad lives with a new partner.
He works freelance so his pay isn't that stable either.
Is there anything else we can submit as evidence?

Please see the following list of acceptable evidence for separated status:
- Decree Nisi
- Most recently dated Council tax bill showing 25% single person occupancy discount
- Solicitors letter confirming separation
- A Signed Affidavit - a sworn declaration they make in writing describing facts that they wish to state as true. They typically make an Affidavit under oath and sign it and have it stamped by a Solicitor.
- Statutory declaration - normally drafted by a Solicitor who is usually a Notary Public or can be drafted a a Legal Executive authorised to administer Oaths. Alternatively, the declaration can be made before a Magistrate (also known as a Justice of the Peace) or some Magistrates Clerks at a Magistrates Court.
