Eh? The FAFSA should allow you to apply as an independent. Unless you have an absurdly high income for a student (unlikely), you'll be fine.
The FAFSA allows you to apply as an independent, but law schools don't (with some age exceptions).
You're right, I wasn't thinking straight. I was thinking he could apply as an independent and then send a FAFSA correction with parental information later, but of course his parents aren't just unwilling to provide the information now, they're unwilling to do it ever.
