FAFSA Frequently Asked Questions:
What if my parents are divorced?
Use the parent with whom the student lived with the most in the last 12 months. If you did not live with one parent more than the other, give answers about the parent who provided more financial support during the past 12 months, or during the most recent year that you actually received support from a parent.
Do I include the income of my stepparent?
Yes, if the step parent is married to the parent who is required to provide information on the FAFSA.
If I provide my own support, do I have to list parents?
Yes, until the student is 24 years old or meets the limited exceptions listed on the FAFSA worksheet.
What if my family owns a business?
The business value does not include the value of a small business if your family owns and controls more than 50% of the business and the business has 100 or fewer full – time employees.
