FAFSA Household size in a divorce...

lisabeeslisabees Registered User Posts: 493 Member
I am newly divorced and filling out fafsa as custodial parent. I have four kids.

One is about to graduate college and will be living at home, probably more with me than his father. He doesn't yet have a job, so the upcoming year is unknown. Last year, I paid more of his college expenses than his father did.

Two is the sophomore in college. He definitely received more than half of his support from me and will continue to do so.

Three and four legally split custody 50/50 with dad and me, although they are with me more often. While he does provide child support, I am the one who pays medical bills and all activities etc.

Can I claim them in the household size? Not sure what to do.
