Work and Benefits
When people are separating there are lots of decisions to be made about work. If care is shared will each parent work part time? Will one work more and the other take a greater share of the caring responsibilities? How will income be affected by the decisions made? What impact will this have on each of you? And on the children? Do one or both of you need to retrain?
Where parents are working at the time of separation it is important to retain stability of income as much as possible and to think through the implications of any changes carefully.
