Question about legal guardianship (FAFSA)
hello all thank you for reading this,
i have a question about the legal guardianship question that reads:
"As determined by a court in your state of legal residence, are you or were you in legal guardianship?"
I am 19 currently,
in Virginia, I WAS in legal guardianship ( I have turned 18 since), the court gave legal guardianship to my sister
so, naturally I put that yes, i was in legal guardianship before turning 18, then
under it said that I am considered an "independent student"
but from my understanding, an independent student doesnt receive support ,
but my parents still support me (send money etc) so im a bit conflicted.
could someone please clear this up for me? Thank you !
