I can't help you with advice either mate as it would be different here to the UK anyway.

Quite an honour to be asked by her I presume.

@Bibs this is simply a lovely thing - but do consider the wider implications that go alongside this though. University funding is one to consider - should she apply then you will have to declare your income details to SFE and they will assess her funding on your income.

Can't honestly imagine saying I'm not going to adopt her in case she doesn't get a uni grant!

I think the point here is that there is a system, your legal status won't affect the love you have for each other but it may impact the support she is entitled to by the state or perhaps her legal guardian. I don't think for a moment this is a measure of your commitment, I will echo the comments on what a lovely act this is, good on you. 👍

Congratulations @Bibs, that is indeed a lovely gesture and an honour. 
 

Don’t worry about Uni. Payment of fees through a student loan do not need declaration of your income.
 

If you are looking for additional funding, there is a minimum grant of around 4k. If she wants any more, you would need to declare your income but she would not be eligible for more if you earn over 48k (I think). So if you do, no point in declaring anything and just claim the minimum.

What a wonderful thing for her to ask, she must value you very highly indeed!  I hope you can work this out as smoothly as possible.  If you've not come across it already, this site outlines some key steps and questions.

We are very similar :) My boys and girls have never ever said anything about half siblings and I don't think the thought has even crossed their minds. They all grew up together so consider themselves siblings end of. Likewise I had never thought of it till now reading this.
