The court can order your spouse to pay for college or part of college, but usually only when the child is older and college expenses are a pressing concern.
For younger children who are likely to be college bound in the future, you should try to negotiate a system where both parents are taking measures to fund an eventual college diploma for your child.
And you should be prepared to communicate the importance of scholarships and affordable in-state tuition to your child.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we work with parents to ensure that their children have all the opportunities possible even when their parents divorce.
We can help you negotiate a workable solution to college funding for even very young children.
