Financial Aid--Guardian, not Parent
Could anyone offer advice re: applying for financial aid for a child (relative) who lives with you where you are the guardian, but not the parent? The child's bio mother is disabled and receives SS disability; father is unknown. I had heard that the child is considered a family unit of 1 and that the only income to be listed is the child's income from Soc Sec? Is that accurate?
