UC eligibility? Please help...

Hello, I'm wondering if I qualify for UC in-state admissions. I've lived in California since before freshman year of high school, and my family has had a green card since my freshman year, but the problem is that I only live with my mom (who does not work) and my dad lives abroad. He filed last year's income report this spring, but since his income is below $100k, he did not have to pay taxes to the U.S.

However, he didn't file his taxes to the CA government, which concerns me bc I doubt California has the same rule, and I don't know if I'm eligible for in-state admissions if my parents only filed their income to the federal government. :( I've heard that UCs don't offer any FA or scholarships to out of state students, which I desperately need since my family is in a tough spot right now. Will I be able to appeal to the FA office? Thank you!

EDIT: My mom has a CA driver's license if that helps my case
