I had a letter through from the tax credits, saying that they had information that I wasn’t living alone as I had claimed, that I was not single.
At first, I imagined that my ex was falsely claiming that I had a boyfriend/ partner- to try to get me in trouble or wreck my entitlement to working family tax credit. But I wanted to find out immediately, so phoned them.
Turns out that different agencies are linked, at it was flagged up to them because somewhere along the one, my ex had claimed he is still living here with me at this address.
I think he may have lied about owning this house and living here in order to get another mortgage. I guessed he might have.
Point is, he has lied and now I have to provide proof that I am paying the bills, that I am divorced, show my bank statements, that all bills are in my name, that I pay single parent rate council tax,etc…
It’s like I have too prove that I am not lying. It’s dreadful. If I don’t, I lose my tax credits.In his attempt to overstep the law, he is creating chaos for me.
Well, I will need to give the evidence. I think I will even enclose a letter showing that the court has asked him to stay off my road! What clearer evidence is there that he doesn’t live here!
Will it ever end? X

It will end, let him get on with it, you have proof you are doing nothing illegal eventually he will get bored when he realises you are not rising to the bait. Sending you hugs you are doing brilliantly x

What a nightmare for you Serenity. As you say, it just goes on and on. I have recently severed the joint tenancy on the house. I presume you will have done that when you bought him out? Is that a source of legal proof maybe? I hope they believe you without it being too much hassle. Good luck xx
