I'll be applying to uni this year and was wondering if anyone could answer a quick question about finance.
Will my student finance still be based on my parents income if I am not living with my parents?
Also if it is My parents are getting a divorce and selling the house, so although currently there are two incomes, it will soon become one after I have left (and my dad has little intention of ever contacting me). Will this effect anything?

If you're under 25 then we would need to have a look at one of your parents income regardless of whether you live with them or not. This would be the parent you feel supports you the most financially. As they are now separated we would need to see some evidence of this, if they have spoken with a solicitor about the separation then a letter form them would be acceptable, alternatively we could accept a council tax bill with a 'single occupancy' discount or a divorce document such as a decree NISI.
