I face the real prospect of being disowned by my parents, which would lead to no communication and no chance of having my student finance forms completed. Is there a way around this without going for the basic student finance amount, which wouldn't be sustainable? Could a legal guardianship with a friends relative be pursued or is there any consideration taken for these 'exceptional' circumstances? I really can't find a way around it. I feel like providing evidence for it would also be difficult as I would be entirely cut off from all family and community members.
Thanks in advance.
