    Sponsor 2 always refers to the female of the household, so if you only live with you're mum, thats who it's referring to.

    if there's not a second adult (as you say) then you need to send in proof that she isn't married and lives alone.

    Proof can be:
    - Council tax statement (usually the easiest to get).
    - Decree Nisi
    - Decree Absolute
    - Any kind of solicitors letter stating separation if thats the circumstance.

    Also, if your mum is a single parent as she is a Widow, they may ask for a death certificate as proof.

    (They are a very sensitive organisation, can't you tell?)

    Never asked for a death certificate for being widowed. If I do ask, it'll be widowed parents allowance.

    The only time I'd ask for a copy of the death certificate is if a parent died midway through an academic year, and you had to recalculate support.

    If sponsor 2 is meant to be the female, they don't make it clear. I don't recall it even being mentioned on the form.

    The whole student finance system is a load of ****, I have just received my form back with a handwritten note saying "We need a letter from your parent's accountant as proof of their income" (My parents are self employed and accountant hasn't finished accounts yet). I wouldn't mind this, if it wasn't for the fact that I had sent the damn letter with the form, and it was stapled to the returned form (Wasn't stapled when sent so they have at least had a look at it).

    Considering that the accounts are for the year to 5th April 2008, then your parents are in a bit of bother with the authorities. Deadline for that was the 31st January 2009
