College Planning & Divorce: Part 1 – Winchester, MA Hub ~ No-Cost Event

September 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Join us for a 2-part series for separated, divorcing, and divorced parents focused on strategies to plan & pay for your children’s college.

This two-part series will prepare you for the next step in your children’s life. Designed to stand alone; however, we encourage you to attend both for the best understanding of the process. The second presentation is on October 19, 2021, at 6:30 pm.

Part 1 of the presentation will focus on issues to consider when you are separated or divorcing when planning for your children to attend college. The second presentation will focus on issues to consider post-divorce or when your children are in college.

Part 1: Planning for College While Getting Divorced

  • Who pays for the kids’ college if you are separated/divorcing?
  • Should the issue of paying for college be addressed in the divorce agreement? If so, should it include the terms?
  • What happens if there is money set aside in a college savings accounts?
  • What happens if another family member has created a college savings account?
  • Which parent should fill out the FAFSA form?
  • Do you and your ex both need to include your assets/income on the FAFSA?
  • What are things to be aware of and pitfalls to avoid when filling out the FAFSA?
  • What strategies can you utilize to increase the number of scholarships and financial aid you are eligible to receive?
  • Which assets (homes, retirement, savings, etc.)are required and excluded when filling out the FAFSA?
