Hi, a situation has just arised upon which I need some advice. My partner (were not married) recently started her maternity leave, she gave birth 2 days ago. Today she received a phone call , this phone call was to explain to her that from 1st April she will only be receiving Â£117 a week. This is before her Tax, NI, House, etc comes out. Now the reason behind this is because of time served. She has done 1.75 years, but she got out for 3 months and then re-signed. Now this pay to me seems ridiculous, she will not have the money to live on. If anyone can help me in this field could they please contact me.
