    I don't live with my parents, I live with my partner and his parents however I am still in contact with my parents so I had to select that at the beginning, now it is asking me for information on my mother and father for financial information however they do not provide for me financially. what should I do?

    Unless you can prove estrangement or formal guardianship (or meet the requirements to be classed as independent - be married, have a child, be over 25 or have P60s proving you've supported yourself financially for 3 years) the SFE will want financial information from your parents if they're alive.

    They aren't interested or able to handle unusual family situations.

    Your choices are either to ask your parents to provide the information or to prove independence. Would marrying your partner be an option? In that situation SFE would consider your partner's income alone when deciding what you're entitled to.
