Who is my FAFSA Parent? The parent who will be signing the FAFSA form. The FAFSA defines marital status for your first parent and other parent below:   

  • never married: enter parent who provided most support
  • unmarried and both legal parents live together: enter both parents
  • married or remarried: enter both parents in household
  • divorced or separated: enter parent who provided most support
  • widowed: enter parent

Please use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) to transfer information from the IRS to your FAFSA. Note: The information will not display on your FAFSA. For your protection, the answer to each question is replaced with "Transferred from the IRS." The IRS DRT allows you to securely transfer original IRS tax return information, but not Form 1040X amended tax return information.
