I think its up to age 24, unless they are married or have kids. I could be very wrong tho.

The only students requires to provide parental information on the FAFSA are those who are under teh age of 24.  Until the age of 24, in the yes of the Federal government you are a dependent student and required to provide parentaol income/tax information.  If you are under the age of 24 but are married or you have a child whom you provide 51% of teh financial support for then you are considered independent and do not have to provide parental information.

It depends on their age. I think the age got raised to 26 a while back but you will have to check Fafsa's website to be sure. There are other factors, also, so read through the form instructions.

It depends on the circumstances however, there is a form you can get on the FAFSA website that you fill out to prove you are not a dependent. It does involve providing proof such as letters or other documents. You could even call them and someone will help you out and point you in the right direction.

Not unless your parents are helping you pay for college. 

I am not 100% sure though. You should call the FAFSA helpline and ask.

Depends on the age. It is helpful to have unless you have a good credit score. The parents (or another qualifying adult) may need to co-sign.
