So, here's the thing. I came into the US 2yrs ago on a K-1 Visa. Got married, and have a green card. I never came here with the intent to go back to school, but given the state of the economy, my wife and I discussed it and decided that going back to school would be beneficial for me (and us).

The thing is, we're not sure if I can file for financial aide (FAFSA) because of the affidavit of support. But neither of us can find anything anywhere about whether or not this can be done.

AFAIK, some components of the financial aid system are available to a resident... Your school should have a financial aid office that can answer all of your questions
