I’m currently a student, finishing up my second year of school. I have a daughter from a previous relationship and get about $1000 a month in child support, so I don’t work. My SO and I are planning on getting married in November but I keep hearing about people not getting financial aid once they are married so I’m wondering if we should get married in January instead, so I can get another year of a lot of financial aid money. SO makes a little under 40k. Right now I am getting a little under $6000 a year in Financial Aid, which covers all my tuition and books because I go to a public school. What should I do?
