Thanks for any insite you can give.

You can't legally pretend that your father's income is yours, no matter what side arrangements you make. If he want's to hide assets from your mother he should see a lawyer and leave you out of it. A trust that she doesn't know anything about could do whatever it wanted, file its own tax returns, and use a PO Box.

You must not be a lit major. Find one and ask what fiction tells us about the exploits of couples who hide things from each other. And to the people who get in the middle.
