    HI Daleblackburn,

    For this question, I'd recommend selecting option 3. To reassure you though, when applying for student finance as an independent student under one of these criteria, we will request evidence. As long as you can provide the evidence, the answer here isn't quite as important.

    With regards to evidence, we'd require evidence that you're estranged from your mother (for example, a letter from a social worker/doctor/teacher etc... explaining the situation) and your fathers death certificate (apologies for any difficulty this could cause).

    I hope this information helps.

    Kind regards,

    John.
