    My mom left my dad in Jan 2017, and since then I’ve lived with my mom, and eventually her new boyfriend moved in. I was just filling out student finance with her and one, I don’t know if and where I have to put her new boyfriend in, and two, since my parents are not legally separated, we don’t have any documents proving this. I’ve seen council tax being used as a proof document but we live with her boyfriend so we don’t have the discount. Now normally I’d think that my mom could just go to a solicitor and sign a declaration, but she refuses to spend any money on this so I’m worrying and she told me to sort it out so I’m a bit stressed.

    Does anyone know what evidence I could send them?

    it could be that you send the council tax as proof but your mums partners income will be taken into account

    Hi TheMythicalBeast,

    To calculate your entitlement we use the household income from the household where you would normally live.

    If you would normally live with your mum it would be the financial information from your mum and her partner.

    Thanks Rona
