I need a letter from a solicitor confirming my relationship status (separated, going through a divorce). Is there any advice available on where I can get one? I’m struggling to find a solicitor who’ll do it without managing the entire divorce, but that’s already been started and should actually be complete in the next few months (but not in time to send documents to student finance England before September)

Do you receive single person discount from your local council for council tax? If you do then that is accepted as evidence by SFE (and is easier to get then a solicitor's letter)

I don’t live alone (and the council tax bill isn’t in my name)

I had last years council tax bill (ie showing I lived by myself then, after the civil partnership started and we’d already separated) but they rejected it because it isn’t this years

Hi there,

Do you have a tenancy/mortgage agreement in your name only? Do you have any utility bills in your name only? If you have both you can send this together with a covering letter explaining why you don't have the standard evidence i.e decree nisi/absolute with your name, customer reference number and it will be up to the assessor once received if their happy to accept this. Thanks, Claire
