    My mum's a nurse and pro rata her pay is £32,000 a year, but she does lots of overtime to bring the pay up. Is it accessed pro rata or actually annual income? Also, she's divorced and remarried. Is it hers and my dads pay combined or hers and my stepdads that I put?

    I'm not sure about the first bit but in terms of the divorced section they will take into account anyone living in your household, so if your dad does not live with you then he won't be considered however your stepdad will.

    Sorry I can't help on the first bit

    Oh, that would be ashame. It is very confusing how they calculate things though. And my situation isn't much easier because my parents are divorced. I live with my dad but also in the same house as my grandparents, brother and auntie because my dad cannot afford a place of his own so I have no idea how they will calculate that one

    Good luck though and I hope everything turns out the way you want it to

    Yep,It's not a very good incentive, to have worked so hard and have nothing to show for it. No matter what happens I'm sure you'll show 'em who's boss and what they missed out on

    They only look at the parent, not other relatives.

    I doubt anyone will know the answer, as I can't find the information anywhere. My parents are splitting up RIGHT NOW, and one will be moving out shortly. In which case, I'll be living completely on the income of one parent, who earns less than £25k. However, the other parent was still counted in last year's household income. If SFE do an income assessment for the 2015/16 tax year I am worried that the other parent will still be included in the household income, as it's so close to applications. Can anyone advise how to go about this?

    It goes on what they earned last year. But if someone moves out now, they don't count. Your other parent needs to send proof they're now single.
