My house is owned by my husband he pays the mortgage we are going to separate. 

I will be living in the house with 3 children and old father who is 77 years old.

Income will be carers allowance I get for carring of my disabled child Dla for my child child benefit for 3 children and UC. That's it.

Father gets state pension £220 a week and also gets pip low rates both.

Will I get council tax benefit support?

    Will I be entitled to it taking my income and fathers income?

    Your fathers income will not be taken into consideration for your UC. For council tax reduction i can't advise because all local authorities have their own rules.
