My parents did the exact same thing to me. They literally just flat out refused to sign anything so I could get financial aid. I had to wait FIVE YEARS till I turned 24 so Ny state would use my financial background instead of my parents. There was no other way around it.

I often (well maybe not often but regularly) see here post about people having parents with such behaviour. And eveytime I can't process how parents can act that way towards their children. It sounds so illogical when parents are supposed to wish and do the best for their children. And it's not always parents who had a tough life or stuff like that. Considering this is not even a perfect excuse, both my parents have had an atrocious youth and even after their lives have been full of countless harsh moments ; still they did their best for me.

I'm assuming your father has a phone number, a mortgage/lease and he works. The government knows everything. Unless he's feigning stupidity so he doesn't have to cosign!

My mother did the same, and waited until the last possible moment to tell me. In the year I had "off" I worked a lot to save money and also looked into scholarships and grants. It can be done. It sucks though. Have you thought about financial emancipation?

Is your dad Ron Swanson?

Tell him that the government track people who refuse to sign form because they are "subversive". He needs to sign to fool them into thinking that he doesn't know what they are up to!
