    Currently living with my grandfather, who cannot be my sponsor, I filled out the application how best I could. Without having a solid relationship with either of my parents.

    I have been asked to provide tons of evidence about not having a solid relationship to ask my mother about her financials, would it be possible, after filling the application, to then change to having a sponsor and have my mother send her financial information off, as while the relationship is none existent, a third party has intervened to assist in getting the details to remove the stress student finance are causing about the independence, even though I still don't live with my mother, is it still possible for her to sponsor and change the my application from independent to her being my sponsor? (I'm 19)
    Thanks

    Yes probably. Call them and ask. They are a real nightmare when it comes to this. I was never able to prove my independence and as couldn't get access to my parents info I only ever got the abso minimum.
