    Just trying to work out what I'm entitled to at the moment - my parents are divorced, and my mum & step-dad's household income (where I live at the moment) puts me above the threshold for any additional support. However, once I turn 18 I am planning on making my father's house my primary residence, and his income would most likely make me eligible for a full grant.
    My concern is that Student Finance say that they assess the most "appropriate" parent's household income - i.e. - who you're living with. How would I/could I go about proving that I'm living with my father and not my mother, given that my college is located near to my mum and my child benefit has been paid there?
    Thanks for any help!

    Your mum will also be getting child tax credit for you. You will be on the electoral roll at her house.
    In a nutshell you won't be able to cheat the system as easily as you think.

    It's a case of my mother moving actually - choosing to move in with my dad means I'll be able to stay closer to my home base here :dontknow:
