thanks. Your post meant alot. I just don’t think it is very fair to the young adult 18-21 who is working hard in college, not to have both parents contribute to their welfare. SHe goes to a prestigious college and works hard. Yes, she has a job, and has applied for scholarships, grants and loans. But, there are many expenses that she needs her parents to help with - clothes, medical insurance, uninsured med costs and if both parents were togther her family would pay for these. Now, just bc she turned 18, the parent who left the family (dad in this case) refuses to pay ANYTHING for his daughter. He should not be allowed to say he has a child who goes to this University. ANd it is not that he doesn’t have the means to pay - he is a medical professional - he certainly has the means but he is selfish.
I love my children and will support them whenever they need me - whether they are 18 or 48 and my chldren know this.
I will put the financial needs of my college children on my financial affavdavit and then put it into the hands of the judge.
