I am a Permanent Resident of US and I also have a green card. But I am not a citizen. I am now living for about 2 years in United States. My father and mother live in India. My father also has green card. But he is currently staying in India. He filed taxes for 2003. But this year he is not able to file any taxes, because he was not here and has no income. So am I eligible for FAFSA? If so what should I write in "Income" section - My own income, or my fathers income from India?

Green card means you are potentially eligible for financial aid and can submit a FAFSA. If I recall correctly, FAFSA has two sections for income -- yours and your parents -- and you need to report both. Your post is somewhat confusing because you say both that your father has no income but then ask if you need to report his income in India. You need to report one or the other (he really has no income at all or whatever his income is regardless of where he is working or residing and if he does not prepare a US tax form you may need some proof of income and taxes paid elsewhere if a college requests it).

Oh, sorry for the confusion...
Thanks for the advice.
