We have decided to divorce and we have a child ready for college. Do I have to pay for college?

A lot of times people going through a divorce believe that the courts are discriminating against them when it comes to obligated a parent to contribute to college expenses.  When you are married no one is dictating to you how or if you pay for your child’s college education. However, when you are divorcing the court considers college as a form of support.  The court is not looking to bankrupt parents, but it does depend on the facts of your case as to the contribution.  Working with a skilled and knowledgeable divorce mediator will help families come up with a comprehensive college contribution plan.
