    Hi, I was just wondering how to change my married status to separated as I need to do it for child care forms. I tried to ring up and they cut me off, twice, before I even managed to speak to a person. Any help would be great. Thanks

    You can just call yourself separated, but they might want evidence, especially if theres some financial advantage.

    In those circumstances you need to ask the relevant people what evidence is sufficient proof. i.e they might take anything from HMRC or council tax bills showing you claim single persons allowance.

    Your alternative is to get a formal legal separation, which is good proof and similar to a divorce

    Have a word with CAB so they can id what it is you want and thus what you might need.


    No idea who put the phone down on you. Id ring back tbh, sounds odd.
