Can My Spouse and I Decide How to Split College Expenses in Our Illinois Divorce Settlement?
DuPage County Divorce Attorneys That Can Help with Child Support Settlements
Divorces can be stressful, with so much at stake, and many times conversations end in disagreements. In some instances, however, agreements over child support issues and other family law matters can be reached. Oftentimes, in the middle of a divorce, the subject of splitting your child's college expenses comes into the conversation. Divorcing couples often wonder if they are allowed to agree on a set split of college expense payments or if they should wait to speak with attorneys to settle the decision.
If you can reach an agreement, you and your spouse can absolutely come to terms on an amount or percentage you will each have to contribute. This is just one of many family law issues we deal with at Mirabella, Kincaid, Frederick & Mirabella, LLC. We have dedicated decades to the practice of divorce and family law. It is recommended, however, that you discuss these terms with your attorneys to ensure that any disputes that arise if the future can be handled easily
