    My mum's dead, that's why there's a problem in the first place-lack of parental support.

    God the number of people who just assume that everyone has both parents is unbelievable.
    I'm sorry i hadnt assumed one of your parents were dead? :rolleyes:

    well ur dad is partly right KYRIL. i mean it is a lot of money. money that u havent worked for. and if he wants to buy a house, then that's HIS money. why does HE has to provide for you, since you are such an adult and want to go to university get a studet loan and agree to pay it when u r working. thats the above 18 attitude, not the "my dad is mean and won't let me spend 20 grand as I please".
    if you are rich, however, and he is doing this just to spite you then I agree with u. Go spend his money without asking.

    Have you even bothered to read this thread? elbow_fan wants a grant - that means their dad will not have to pay the fees. The user whos father wants to buy a house is kyril. Get your facts straight before you try and offer "advice".

    Hmmm. My dad is dead. It seems that I have had a narrow escape from years of putting up with frutrating fathers. :rolleyes:






    Whenever I see the word grant I always think of Grant Nicholas out of Feeder. He's so hot.

    Sorry, that was a little off topic... good luck with it all, I hope you get it all sorted. But yeah, stand your ground and stick up for yourself.

    Doesn't the Inland revenue check up on that though?

    I'm sure you have to have been living on your own for 3 years to do that.

    Same goes for you Talya, I'm sorry I seemed really *****y yesterday. I think what you've written is completely out of order and I don't think I'm entitled to sympathy at all, but I realise it sometimes comes across that way. The reason I typed "..." to your first post on here was because it was as though you were saying, "These threads remind me how lucky I am...thank god it's not me!" but I was really down yesterday so now I'm feeling a bit better I understand that you didn't mean it in a bad way. And thank you for the link you provided, I do appreciate it!

    If you haven't been living apart from your parents for 3 years (and have proof of it) its extremely hard to declare yourself an independant if you're under 25. However it can be done (I too have a evil father) you just need various documentation from social worker, doctors (basically anyone who can say your father wont support you. Also it depends a lot on you LEA, they have the biggest say!

    Thats harsh. If anything, losing a parent is one of the few things that should entitle people to 'free sympathy' as you put it. I think you should be a little more sensitive, instead of just telling her to ''get over it''. I mean come on, how did you even remotely think for a second that that was an acceptable thing to say??? Grrr.

    I agree with leona, losing a parent is so hard and no one should ever be told to 'Get over it' (even in jest). Tayla, your post implies you've gone through the same thing so why be so mean? Just cos youre "over it" doesn't give you the right to assume every one else should be.

    I didn't get any sympathy so why should anyone else? It's not the end of the world. TBH when people say their parents are dead on the net I am inclined not to believe them, though, maybe that's why I am a bit harsher than I'd be IRL.

    I changed my SN so people would spell it right, but still, no one can read. What do i have to do?!

    If she's still 17 I suppose she could get emancipated.. but I'm not sure of the full implications of that.
