No-Cost Webinar: College Financing Strategies During & After Divorce Part 2

October 20, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

Are you divorced or divorcing and wondering how to plan for your children’s college? Come to our workshop on College Financing Strategies!

The question of who is going to pay for college can be complicated for separated, divorcing, and divorced parents. When your family is not involved with the probate and family court, there is typically no legal obligation to pay. However, you may be ordered to contribute when you are divorced or going through a divorce.

This two-part series is designed to get you prepared for the next step of your child’s life. These events are designed to stand alone however for a clearer understanding of the process we encourage you to attend both.

The first presentation focused on issues to consider when you are going through a divorce and are 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.

Molly Chung, Divorce Attorney at Casner and Edwards, will explain what to expect, provide insight into how you might avoid Court intervention, and discuss ways to plan for the future if a child is not yet of college-age.

Andrea McGrath, CFP, CDFA, Financial Advisor, Strategic Divorce Planning, will present strategies for paying for college as well as applying for The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (“FAFSA”).

Part 2: Post-Divorce College Issues

  1. If you are divorced and did not address the kids’ college in your divorce agreement, are there steps that you can take now to require your ex to contribute?
  2. If your income has decreased substantially, while your ex’s income has increased since the divorce, can you take steps to require your ex to pay for a greater proportion of the college expenses?
  3. What happens if a parent cannot or will not pay for college as they agreed at the time of the divorce?
  4. If your kids are in college, does that reduce the amount of child support that you are required to pay/entitled to receive?
  5. What happens if my child follows a less traditional path for post-secondary education?
  6. What college education tax benefits are available?
  7. Traps to avoid when going through the college process with your ex.
