Financial aid help - August 13th 2011, 05:23 AM

My mom and I made to much money last year to be able to receive any help with college expenses, but money is still a struggle in my family. My mom is a single parent of three and recently quit her job to launch her own zombie candle making business(which I fully support her with since she's finally happy), but dishing out a few grand on school a semester is too much and was not expected. My dad lives in a completely other state and is considered unemployed and I want to claim him on my financial aid forms next year so I can have some help paying for college, especially since I'm looking into transferring to an out of state college. Is there any way I can claim him although he provides no support to me and I do not live with him?
If that makes any since, help would be very much appreciated and a huge amount of stress would be gone

You would have to have his personal information and copies of his tax forms if there are any. My mom and I did this my first year until we realized that we had the opposite problem of you doing that so we just used my mom's instead.

What Kate said, and make sure you do it at the first SECOND it's available. Money runs out fast.
