In today’s economy, college expenses can be burdensome for any family, but they become even more so during divorce proceedings.
Paying college expenses can be devastating when all of a sudden there are two sets of living expenses and still only one family. Is it the parent’s duty to help with a child’s college-related expenses?
California law does not require a parent to pay for their child’s college expenses. However, it is possible for a divorcing couple to arrive at an agreement that is good for all concerned – such as setting up a savings account, a pre-paid tuition plan or determining how much each parent will contribute.
