Advice on separation involving children

Good morning

I have just been informed by my long term partner that he no longer wishes to continue our relationship. We currently live together and we have two children both under two Years old.
My partner works and is on a good salary. I no longer work as I gave up work to look after our children, the youngest being only eight months old & the eldest child has special needs.
I am fairly sure that my partner is involved with another women, but at the moment I don't want to think about that, I just need to work out what I am going to do.
Can anyone offer me any advice or a name/number of an association that can help on any of the following:
Who I contact here re child maintenance?
If I move back to UK would it be Switzerland or UK that would decide about contact and maintenance for the children?
Do I have to find somewhere to live or does he?

I am worried that he is going to stop providing for us and at the moment, financially speaking, I have nothing.

We're not married so I assume this makes things much better for him?

Thank you so very much for any help or advice you are able to give.

Welcome to the Forum.

Jrspet beat me to it - as you found EF itself, I'm sure you'll be able to find some of the other information, including that in the Sticky Threads which might be applicable in your case. I suggest you go through it and come back if you have specific problems which haven't been covered already.
