    Getting through it 10th Aug 18 at 9:28 PM
    I have recently separated from my partner and moved back with my parents. Thing is she took debt out in my name which I am now trying to pay off through the coming months.
    Its across about 8 creditors which i have sorted at least 4 of them in to payment plans. The other ones will surely come in time. Does anyone have general advice in getting through a tough time where you literally have to watch every penny that is spent to get throuh the debt so i can then move out and sort my life out again.

    Take it as a lesson, not to let someone take out credit in your name.

    It will pass, closer you get to being debt free the quicker it will go
