As a knowledgeable Saratoga Child Support Attorney, I am often asked if a parent who pays for child support will also pay for college expenses.
- Parents who pay child support may balk at being required to pay the shelter expenses included in their basic child support obligation plus such items as college room and board.
- If a court has directed one party to pay child support, those double shelter expenses will be taken into consideration when college obligations come into play.
- It is important for couples to consider such matters in the process of drafting their agreement.
- It is wisest to consult with a Saratoga Child Support Attorney to avoid future pitfalls when those expenses begin to take effect.
