As username suggests I have a son in his second year at Uni. He currently has the minimum loan as his household income was more than 70k. A year ago his father and I separated and we no longer have joint finances - his father does not contribute anything .
My son returns to his family home during the holidays. I work, earning just under 27k per annum.
Can he/I apply to have our income assessed and get a grant/bigger loan? Until we finally sort out a divorce settlement things are tight for me. Son's loan is taken up entirely by rent.
Thanks in advance for help.

Yes they should be able to re-asses the amount he gets, he just has to change a few details on student finance and you will be asked to send in a divorce certificate along with a p45/p60 ( to prove how much you earn) and fill out parent assessment form online or by post, and they should bump the loan and grant quite a bit!
hope this helps
