Divorce attorneys owe a responsibility to their clients to thoroughly address, to the extent possible, the myriad issues that will arise when their children reach college age. Too often, these issues are given short shrift because:
- The parties' children are young at the time of the divorce.
- The parties (or their attorneys) have never been through the college financial process and thus have little to no information about the experience that awaits them.
- Often, in the heat of the moment, the pressing issues of asset division and support take up all the oxygen in the room.
Attorneys may brush aside the issue with the old chestnut, “You can just file a modification.” However, the reality is that some, if not significant, planning is possible in many instances. Failure to meet the question head on at the time of the divorce could do a great disservice to clients.
In this program, learn how to better protect your client by dealing with future college expenses and related issues at the time of the divorce.
