tanya lord started this petition to Local mp

My brother died suddenly aged 37 years old. He has been with his fiance for over 17 years and they have 2 wonderful children together.

Having the shock of losing her partner and the father of her children, the governent then decides to stop her child and working tax credits, which means she will not be entitled to any money for upto 6 weeks.

If my sister in law was married she would be entitled to help available. 

I believe common law partners and their dependants should have the same rights as married couples and civil partnerships. And therefore i have started this petition to help others that may be facing the same situation.

Please sign!

Many thanks.
