Why doesn't my EFC change when I enter in my divorce information? Why are they still counting his income?

Did you divorce in 2009?  If not, that is the tax records that they go on....  I believe....

It asks if you are single, married, separated or divorced/widowed.

I filled out the fafsa when i was still married. EFC was over 4400

Then when we separated, I corrected the information because we separated in 09. The EFC did not change at all.

So I thought well maybe you have to be divorced. So I just put that I was divorced in 2009. My EFC still did not change.

Ask your financial aid person, but most schools have a form to file if your FAFSA doesnt reflect your current financial status. You can expect they will ask for more information, proof of divorce that sort of thing.
