<p>Okay, so in short....
Combined, my parents make around 100 k a year combined. However, with the cost of living in New Jersey as well as other debts, my parents would have struggled to pay for college because they only see about 60 k of this money.</p>
<p>But now, my parents are separating, which I know will get me more federal aid. However, since my mom can't deal with her financial problems anymore, she's filing for bankruptcy.</p>
<p>Will this affect my ability to pay for college? I'm gonna be a senior and I'm seriously freaking out. this whole situation sucks.</p>
<p>btw if it's any help, I'm a B+ to A- student with a 30 ACT so I might get a bit of merit money from some schools I'm applying to, but not enough.</p>
<p>any help is appreciated.</p>
