Really, really confused
Okay, this is a question about my "sister". She was my foster sister before age 13 but still lives with my family unofficially. Collegeboard's EFC Calculator says that if she was in foster care at age 13 or older, she is considered financially independent for the purposes of the EFC. Should my parents ask to become her foster parents again? If so, will my sister get full financial aid at college, will my parents be expected to pay for it, or will she be expected to pay for herself? If they don't ask to be foster parents... Her mother has no income except whatever welfare she gets. If she doesn't live with her mother does this matter? Will she still get full financial aid? Will they look at my parent's income instead even though they aren't her legal guardians (are we her "household"?)?
