How Will I Pay for My Children’s College? What Will I Do if My Ex-Spouse and I Can’t Agree on How Much to Contribute to College?
A college education has come to be thought of as something every child in America is entitled to, and something that every parent wants to provide. Seeing your child go to college is almost as much a part of the “American Dream” as owning your own home. But with college costs rising far faster than general inflation, a 4-year education at a pricey private school can easily exceed a quarter of a million dollars. And even 4 years at an in-state public school can easily exceed $100,000 per child.
