How Do Divorcing Parent’s Handle Private School?
As a New Jersey Divorce Attorney, I get questions all the time from clients about their children going to a private school. Parents that are getting divorced that have their children enrolled in private schools have additional considerations. How long has that child been in the private school? Has it just been one year? Has this child matriculated, and they’re now in the 10th grade, and it would be detrimental to move the child from the private school setting into a public school setting? How long the child’s been in school, what the parents’ expectations were for the child are very important. Maybe they said, “We’re just going to do this for primary school, and in high school the child will end to public school”. These are all things that you need to discuss, that you need to work through creative solutions on how you’re going to fund the child’s education now that you’re living in two separate homes.
If you have children in private school when going through a divorce it can be very tricky and confusing. Contact our New Jersey Divorce Attorney with any questions you may have.
