Claiming the kids as not being dependent on you will be difficult, if not impossible if they have been living at the same address as you. I tried very hard to claim no dependance on my parents, with rent checks, food bills, utilities payments, etc. with no avail.

yea, I did a search, and it's the dependent part... Unfortunately we fall into that income trap that just doesn't get much financial aid. Can't afford it, but can't get financial aid :(

You and about every other parent with kids going through college. Starting out, I went to the financial aid office with my parents tax returns, to see if there was any possibility of assistance.... they pretty much laughed me out the door. They essentially want everyone to get rid of any hobbies, vacation houses, rental houses or toys you have, to pay for college!!
