Reply To: living together – partner in armed forces


Stainsby and I will respectfully disagree on the point in question. I have used this in submissions where the LA’s decision was confirmed (admittedly only as part of the evidence and it was not the main thrust of the argument). In those particular cases I included CT caselaw as it supported the belief that a partner working away from home was indeed part of the household as this was the property returned to when on leave etc.

I wouldn’t use it as a matter of course and only when it has more relevance to the circumstances of an individual case.

Do I know what I'm doing? The jury's out on that........................
