    Hello,
    I was wondering does Student Finance needs to be confirmed by two of the parents? My mum did get divorced with my dad ages ago and I do not have any contact with him for about 15 years now, or I dont even know where he is. Can I apply for student finance with only one parent? Will they accept only confirmation/ information from my mother?

    Yes. I applied with only my daddy's income.

    Thank you
    Just make sure your mum has her decree nici (proof of divorce). They asked me for that.

    Hi Sarah977

    This is absolutely fine. If your mum lives as a single person now, we will ask for evidence of her divorce. The assessment will then be based on mum's income only.

    Thanks
