College

In New Jersey, children who are attending college are generally considered unemancipated. While unemancipated, children are entitled to support from their parents and parents may also have to contribute to their college expenses. This is a big change for most families. As with all family law issues, there is no one formula that works. Each family must find solutions that best fit them and their children. Parents should try to resolve these issues before the children start college to make the transition into college easier for them. However, it can become a challenging time where income, assets, and expenses must be balanced  to find a reasonable solution. Even though most settlement agreements prepare for this event, it can become overwhelming. We can help.
