A Suffolk County Divorce Lawyer said this appeal concerns a determination of the Family Court directing the father to pay 35% of the college loan expenses for the parties’ daughter. However, the mother appeals as the lower court only directed the father to pay 35% of the college loan expenses for the daughter’s fall 2012 semester, with leave to petition for the daughter’s future college expenses.
Long Island’s Best Divorce Lawyer said the Appellate Division agreed with the Family Court’s decision. The Family Court was correct in its determination that the father would only be obligated to pay 35% of the parties’ daughter’s college loan expenses for the fall 2012 semester. The mother would still have leave to petition the court regarding any future college expenses related to the daughter.
