    Hi @nicky1964, and a warm welcome to the community!

    Thanks for sharing this with us. I'm so sorry to hear that you're feeling low at the moment- it's clear to see that you have a lot on your plate whilst you're waiting for your court date.

    I wonder if you or your sons are receiving any benefits at the moment? It may be worth checking the online benefits calculator to see if there's anything you can claim that might help you out. In the meantime, I hope you find comfort and support in being a part of our community!
