They consider your father's income as well, even if he is unwilling to pay.

the correct spelling is "eligible."
You can use the calculators on finaid.com, which i already told you.

Your amount of financial aid is determined based on your filing of the FAFSA AND the specific college/university's finaid policies. There is absolutely NO WAY to tell you exactly how much finaid you will be receiving. Some colleges will award you more than others. Not all schools meet the full cost of attendance with aid.

Has your mom thought about renegotiating her child support agreement. She could ask for an upward modification based on the fact that you are attending college where your father would be responsible via court order for a percentage of the out of pocket expenses for college (tuition/room & board)

FAFSA based FA does *not* factor in the non-custodial parent's income, only the child support paid. Some, but not all, colleges ask for a financial statement from the nc parent and/or the CSS form.
The school I work at does not look at these at all, and this is true of many others.
