College Expenses

Divorced parents are required by law to contribute toward their children’s college expenses. College expenses include room and board, tuition, transportation, books, fees, medical expenses and living expenses during periods of recess.

Tuition costs vary between schools, financial assistance plays a factor, income and ability to pay are considerations in making an award. In some cases, the court may order the costs paid directly to the school, in other circumstances, the payments can be made directly to the child or other parent.
