    I've recently been estranged from my parents and I am living with my grandmother. I want to know what income proof and proof of estrangement I will need to provide for my student finance application.

    Hi, we would require confirmation of your estrangement, below is a list of acceptable evidence.


    Examples of Evidence

    • A letter from your social worker
    • A letter from an advice worker, personal tutor or teacher
    • If you have visited your doctor because of problems relating to your broken relationship with your parents, a letter to confirm your circumstances
    • A letter from a counsellor, an organisation, employer or a charity
    • A letter from a member of the clergy, a rabbi or imam that explains that he/she was aware of the difficulties in the student’s family and their subsequent estrangement
    • A statement of incident from the police
    • A statutory declaration signed/stamped by solicitor
    • A letter from a solicitor
    • A signed and dated Estrangement declaration form* completed by any Independent person with good standing in the community.

    Thanks

    Hi, thank you for your response. Will a letter from a vicar who has helped me through some tough times since I was a child be enough proof? And will I need to provide proof of income from my nan? She is retired and receiving a pension. Thanks in advance.
