Wow, they don't want much, do they? *dripping sarcasm*

I'm petitioning for independent status for financial aid because I left home due to abuse (Which means I don't have to provide my parent's tax information in my FASFA application). All they want to even LOOK at the damn thing is...

1: My tax return transcript.

2: My W-2's

3: TWO notarized letters from a counselor, social worker, clergy, teacher, or adult relative that confirms that I was abused.

4: The blood of my first born child.

At this point, it would just be easier to drag BF to the courthouse and get married (for the record, we're planning on getting married anyway, but he wants to wait until we can afford an actual ceremony). I would be considered independent at that point for the purposes of financial aid.

Oh, did I mention I have a week to get those notarized letters?


P.S. This is a vent post. I am VENTING. If I don't vent, I'll explode, and nobody wants that. It's impossible to clean exploded me off the ceiling.

If you're married, his income will be factored in, as well.

You're really in a mood the past couple of days. I hope your holiday season improves.

I know, his income isn't so high that I won't still qualify for aid.

I would probably just get married at that point and hold off on a ceremony

It takes like 4 minutes to get somethign notorized.

I know you want sympathy, but it should be a difficult process. Otherwise everyone would claim their parents don't support them financially for one reason or another to get free money.

Huh. I never had an issue proving I was independent. Goodluck.

It's improving so far. BF landed a great job, we managed to save our home and the truck, and my employer decided to keep me after the holiday season.
