1)      My parents are no longer married/have remarried.  Whose financial information should I provide on my FAFSA form?

Use the following guidelines to determine which parent’s information must be included on the application.  This may not follow tax forms filed or to be filed.

If your parents are both living and married to each other, provide information for both of them.

If your parent is widowed or single, provide information for that parent.

If your widowed parent is remarried as of today, provide information for that parent and the person to whom your parent is married (your stepparent).

If your parents are divorced or separated, provide information for the parent you lived with during the past 12 months. If you did not live with one parent more than the other, provide information for the parent who provided more financial support during the past 12 months, or during the most recent year that you actually received support from that parent. If this parent is remarried as of today, provide information for that parent and the person to whom your parent is married (your stepparent)

2)      My spouse and I have ‘legally’ separated after filing taxes.  What information should I put down for my income information?

If you are ‘legally’ separated, you are not required to report your spouse’s income information.
