Addressing Tough Decisions & Finding Favorable Solutions
Assessing your child’s educational needs ahead of time will help you prepare for potential obstacles. You and your co-parent will need to answer a broad variety of questions along the way, and our legal team will work tirelessly to develop comprehensive solutions and airtight strategies.
You may be concerned, for example, that there will not be enough money to pay for college or a trade school. If your children are older, the time to figure out a solution to this issue may be running out. Assuming you have saved money for these costs, it will most likely be pulled out of your asset division and held for the children. Parents who have not had the resources to save money will negotiate how these bills will be paid. You may want the children to be partially responsible for their costs, but your spouse might disagree. Some clients want the costs paid pursuant to respective salaries, and others believe the children should take out all loans available to them. Children may also receive scholarships and grants to help.
And paying for college isn’t the only decision – parents can also disagree on the choice of the child’s institution. Likewise, the child may want to have input. Perhaps your spouse wants to limit the child to an in-state school.
Each situation is entirely unique, and we believe in developing solutions from scratch to suit your needs and goals. The sooner we begin, the better we can advocate for your priorities at each stage of the divorce.
