    So it looks like me and oh are gonna split up so I'll be moving back to Cornwall to be near my family. Just wondering (if it's not too personal a question) if anyone can tell me roughly how much I'll be getting benefits?

    Oh wants to give me and lo money to live on but will need money for himself so I need to work out a reasonable amount to ask from him.

    It varies from place to places but I get £130 income support every 2 weeks, £60 a week child tax credits and £20.30 child benifit a week + housing benifit that covers my rent every month and you dont have to pay coucil tax. Hope that helps x
