Generally, the FAFSA requires that you be at least 24 years of age, married, or have a child of your own (that you support) to be considered independent. Please review the dependency questions on the FAFSA for additional criteria.
If you cannot answer “yes” to any of the dependency questions on the FAFSA, then you are required to use your biological parent(s) information. If your parents are not married to each other, use the information for the parent that provided the most financial support during the past 12 months, or during the most recent year that you actually received support from a parent. If your parents are remarried, then you must provide step-parent tax information as well.
