I worked in financial aid and admissions as an undergrad and had people do it all the time. If you have someone else's address you can put down, you can have them write a letter saying you live with them and provide all support for yourself and show proof of employment and the stuff you pay on your own. The tricky thing is your mother would have to write a letter agreeing that you support yourself. Do you think she would be willing to do that?

would be a lot easier, and it'll update the information yearly when he files.
The Dept of Ed and the IRS are in bed together. Please know that anything you put on your FAFSA is subject to verification and they may ask for receipts.
 
A parent can't claim a dependent child for years, then flip it and say that they didn't support them when it's time to do a FAFSA. I mean, they can, but just be aware that it can come back to bite you in the rear.

I didn't read all of the responses, so this may have been said already.
 
If a person is:
under 24
haven't been married
don't have any children
not a veteran
hasn't been a foster child/adopted/ward of the court
 
They are considered to be "dependent" according to the guideline of the Dept of Ed., regardless if they moved out at 16 and totally support themselves.
 
Buuuut, just because a parent fills out and signs a "Parent Plus" application, doesn't mean they'll be co-signing on any loans. At a career/trade school 90% of parents are declined and even if they are approved, just filling out the app and running it doesn't mean they're on any loans.
Regardless if they're approved or not, a dependent student must provide the parent's tax returns to be used for the FAFSA app.
 
I speak to a lot of parents who refuse to "be on" their child's FA. I explain to them to let us at least check, it's a good chance they will be declined. They usually are, and all of the loans are in the student's name, but we have to have the parent's income tax return to complete the FAFSA and have them sign the Parent Plus form to see.
 
Not the school's rules, that's a Dept of Ed rule.
 
Every now and then you can get a Professional Judgment, if the parent is in or has been incarcerated and there is proof that the parent is MIA.

I"m glad your dad is going to help you out.  Your mother sounds so awful, it's terrible what you had to live thru.  Hope things will be better from now on.
