    I am applying for my second year Bursary Fees, and my personal circumstances have changed, ie., I no longer live with my boyfriend. NHS bursary are treating it like a divorce and have asked for proof. I cannot provide this as I didn't contribute to any bills etc. Can anyone help or advise ?

    can you get a solicitor to write a letter that say that you've seperated or a council tax bill with only your name on it?

    I emailed a solicitor today, and they said that they couldn't do a letter as they don't know me or my circumstances,and as I am a student I am exempt from paying council tax. I could write to them I suppose ? I have missed the deadline, and am worried about money for next year

    You can still ask for a bill from the council and it will just have your name on ( i always had a bill through when i was exempt, at least once a year).

    Solicitors can definitely do this even if they don't know you.

    It costs about £25 and they write that you are single/seperated and that is kinda under oath so it's a legal statement

    That is enough proof - you went to a bad solicitor I think
