    @samfits99, that all depends on which law we are talking about does it not? and for how long you mean, is that a few nights as a one off, or a few nights a week on a regular basis, it also depends on which if any benefits she is claiming
    So as you can see as usual much more info is needed before anyone can give you correct advice, but well done on getting a girlfriend can't be easy during lockdown.

    It also depends on where you live right now. If you live in England and your girlfriend lives with her parents then no, Covid guideline announced by the Government mean we are in a lockdown until 2nd December and if your girlfriend isn't part of your "support bubble" then you can't go, unless of course you ignore them.

    @poppy123456 spoken to my local police force and they said if she lives on her own which she does it's fine. so I'm happy 😊

    Which was why i said, if she lives with her parents.... had you said she lives alone then the answer would have been simple.

    @samfits99 it may matter what benefits she is claiming and when you say visit do you mean a one off visit or regular visits?
