Currently claiming CEA all within rules etc. However there is the possibilitythat the wife's civvie job may move to another part of the country, which would be a 3 hour commute if lucky. Thus to keep her job (and we do need both of us to work to afford the top up fees) she may have to work away from home and, during the week, stay with family members who live nearby. We do not live in a part of the country where she could easily find alternative work. A phone call to the CEA advice line was met with "there's an 0800 number for suspected fraud - somebody might tell on you", which was not really much help at all! Has anybody been in a similar situation and what was the outcome. At the moment we are in a lose:lose situation. If she gives up the job, we can't afford to pay the rest of the fees, however if the company does move and she goes with it, we may not be entitled to CEA. I should point out that as she had already negotiated term time only work, the nights spent out of the family home averaged out over the year would be at most 2 nights per week. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
