I don't want to disclose too much personal information, but my parents are divorced. Parent 1 (whom I live with) filled out FAFSA, which gave us a reasonable EFC that we could afford. Parent 2 did not complete FAFSA because he was not legally required to do so as I do not live with him. However, I recently learned that the CSS Profile (which my schools require) require that parent 2 disclose his financial information. Parent 2 make A LOT of money. This means I will most likely get NO aid from my schools because they will assume that because parent 2 is rich we can afford the price. However, parent 2 has told me that he does not want to contribute any money to my education and believes I should pay for it myself. In short, he is selfish. I am afraid financial aid officers will not be accommodating and that I won't be able to afford the colleges I get into (Im applying to top schools). Is there anyway to describe to schools this situation? Has anyone else been in a similar position? I really want to afford the schools I am going to, but if I get no aid that is a problem. Parent 1 does not have the money to challenge parent 2 in court to pay up. Help.
