    So student finance send me an email saying that they need proof that my mum and dad are separated in order to process how much money I am eligible for. My dad walked out on us around 6 months ago, and my mum hasn't applied for single occupancy discount on the council tax, and they are not in the proceedings of getting a divorce. I was wondering what we could send off as evidence; my dad has been unemployed pretty much his whole life anyway, and wouldn't contribute anything to the household income anyway, but seeing as they aren't getting a divorce or anything we can't send off any of the documents suggested on the student finance website.

    I'm going to skip over the "slow clap" . Has he expressed that he is living in a seperate permanent residence to your mother on any document?

    Haha no, but they are on speaking terms I believe, so I'm sure he would be willing to sing some kind of document or anything that we could send off?

    Solicitors letter saying they are separated would work

    Either a solicitors letter or a letter from the court saying they are going to file for a divorce with an official stamp (if that's ever happening.) I sent a court letter off and it worked.
