Who Is Responsible For Your Child’s Expenses?
How Support is Paid
There are multiple ways your contribution to college expenses can be made. You may be required to pay the college or university directly, your child, the other parent, or into a trust account established for college expenses.
If you and your child’s other parent know your child is headed to college, you can sit down and come to your own decision on how these expenses will be covered. While Illinois law prescribes how courts can handle this situation, you do not automatically have to go to court to address this issue. With the help of your attorney, you and your child’s other parent can discuss fair contributions that will enable your child to attend school without taking on the expense entirely by him or herself. It is also possible to use mediation to guide the conversation.
