When applying for financial aid, can my ex wife just apply since she claims my older son? She makes about 36,000 which includes the 6000 a yr in child support. He would get most of the Pell Grant by just her applying. I pay her child support ( 6000 yr) for both my older son and younger son. I would still help with my son’s college expenses though.
Also, are we better applying separately to each college ( 4) or just one application for FASFA?
