As a knowledgeable Saratoga Child Support Attorney, clients often ask if they will be required to pay child college expenses by the court.
- College support is discretionary, and not a mandatory add-on under the Child Support Standards Act.
- A court can order either party to pay for some or all of their children’s college expenses based on the family’s resources, the amount of income available to both parties, the parties’ education and their pre-divorce educational expectations for their children.
