FAFSA troubles with parental information and documentation
I've been trying to complete the FAFSA for months. But there has always been one problem with completing it: parental information. Every time I so much as mention the FAFSA, my dad instantly gets angry. He starts shouting that he should just quit his job so he can catch up on taxes (he doesn't have 2015 taxes completed yet) and other, more vulgar statements. College starts in about 1 month and 1 week for me. They're going to be asking for payment soon. I decided I couldn't stall any longer. For parental information, I just marked that I cannot provide it and that I do not have a special circumstance. I know that it makes me only eligible for unsubsidized loans, but that's all I can possibly do. I could ask my dad every night, get yelled at indirectly every night, and it still would not get done by the time tuition is due. But in the end, I finally got my FAFSA complete.
But here is the problem. I was told from an email from the FAFSA web site that I need to provide documentation to verify my situation (that I cannot provide parental information for a non-special circumstance). What kind of documentation could I even find/produce to verify this? I don't think I could write up a sheet that says, "My dad hates the FAFSA. He just refuses to complete it. Every time I mention it he just gets furious. There is no possible way I could get it completed otherwise if I didn't mark 'unable to provide parental information.'" Is there even a way for documentation to verify my "situation"?
I'm not just trying to complain about my dad. He's a hard worker. But I need a loan. And time is running out. I need to find a way to pay for college.
