I am a single mother, never married, "Custodial Parent" was never defined; son lives equally w/ father. How does he file for Financial Aide-college?
Court docs say we are to retain equal 50% joint physical custody.
How does my son fill out financial aide forms for college? My income is less as I am single, I only own a small condo and have only $250 in a small savings account. I have no money for my son to go to college.
Does my son HAVE to use his father's and stepmother's income on his application? Or can he use ONLY mine? Mine would make more sense as my assets are less. Does my son HAVE to live with me full time in my home? I think he wants to go live full time with his father & stepmother when he turns 18. That will hurt his chances at being able to get money to go to college.
Can a court force me to somehow pay for half my son's tuition? I cannot possibly do that. I currently still have about $17,000 of credit card debt from attorney's fees (from the custody suit). I paid my attorney with six credit cards. I am current on my mortgage, car payment and all my credit cards, but have no savings.
