Separating from ex girlfriend - what do I owe her?

    Looking for advice. I have a toddler with my now ex girlfriend. We were never married, she worked before she had our daughter and she lives in my house. About a year into our relationship after having our baby, our relationship came to an end. My ex never returned to work after having our daughter (who is 2). I pay for absolutely everything. Obviously now that our relationship is over, we cannot live together. I have gone to my solicitor who has told me it is my responsibility to put a roof over my child’s head and pay maintenance.I have no issues doing this. I am going to get a mortgage to do this.My question is besides providing accommodation and child maintenance, do I have to give my ex girlfriend any “pay out” or money to get her back on her feet while she (hopefully) returns to work?
