As a dedicated Saratoga Child Custody Lawyer, I am often asked if a child is required to get permission to go to a certain school.
- Families may approach payment for and selection of a child’s college in unique ways. Think through how this issue might have been approached if the separation or divorce had not happened.
- The court will not order the child to get the parents’ permission to select a college, but a negotiated agreement often includes language outlining the way the college will be selected.
- Each parent’s involvement in the process, and obligation to pay for that college may be contingent on their level of consent to the selected college.
