Question:maura boogay attorney pennsylvania new jersey

My son is graduating and moving out of my ex's house soon. He plans on attending a community college in a different state.

I'd like to start paying child support directly to him, rather than to my ex.

What are my options for getting the support directly to him?

Noblesville Indiana Divorce LawyerQuestion:

My ex-wife is requesting my GI Bill education allotment be used to pay for our oldest child’s college education.

While I certainly want to contribute, I was planning on using the GI Bill to pay for my college and help our other children who will need college assistance as well.

Can my GI Bill education allotment be used for my children’s college expenses?

Noblesville Indiana Divorce LawyerQuestion:

My divorce decree states I am to provide "room and board for college no matter where the child resides."

Since my child resided at her mother’s house throughout college, my ex-wife is requesting payment even though our child has already graduated college.

Our child actually paid for a lot of her own living expenses while at home, and I periodically paid for car insurance, gas, etc., so I was contributing something, if not technically "room and board."

Can my ex-wife really request payment for room and board after our child has already graduated?

divorce lawyer Kirsten ReneauQuestion:

My ex-wife and I agreed that I would continue paying support while our child attends college even though our child is considered emancipated.

We are trying to negotiate a dollar amount. How can I determine a fair amount of post-emancipation support without my ex-wife asking for too much?

Omaha Nebraska Divorce LawyerQuestion:

My oldest child is returning home from college this summer, and my ex-wife is threatening to raise my child support on my other children if I do not pay for certain expenses for my college-aged child, such as gas, increased utility costs from living at home over the summer, etc.

Since my oldest child is emancipated I have explained to my ex-wife that anything the child needs I will pay directly to him rather than to my ex-wife. But then she threatens me that she can get me to pay more.

Are her threats valid or should I proceed with paying my child directly for his summer expenses?
