Factoring College Into Child Support

When it comes to child support, with narrow exceptions, the law in Minnesota only requires support payments to be made until your child finishes high school and reaches the age of 18. As a divorcing parent, however, you may still be concerned about funding your child's college education.

There are ways to do this, but consider talking to an experienced divorce attorney like Todd Dwire of Dwire Law Offices, P.A., first. Even if you are working amicably toward a settlement, experienced legal advice is still necessary to make sure you do not agree to something that could ruin you financially. Come to our Lakeville, Minnesota, law firm to learn more.

Factoring A College Education Into Child Support Is Risky

A child support agreement takes into account many factors — health care, day care and education, to name a few. While paying for a child's college after a divorce is a laudable goal, we do not always advise clients to do so as part of the child support process.

We are committed to protecting the rights of our clients and advice like this is just one way that we can do that. We know where the pitfalls are, and we can help you avoid them.
