Kirk Stange quoted in Ladue News Article titled: Divorce and College Costs.
"While handling the significant expense of higher-education upfront may seem like a daunting financial burden, putting off college-cost-planning can often be even more costly, notes Kirk Stange of Stange Law Firm. When the children's higher education expenses are not part of the parents' original divorce decree, the couple will have to return to court for a modification. 'If the kids are young, some parents don't want to put it in the agreement. Then, what ends up happening is that one parent has to come back to do a modification later when the kids are in their teens,' Stange explains. 'The pro to putting it in the original agreement is that you avoid a modification down the line.' But some parents argue that college costs and parents' income levels may change over time, or that the child may even decide not to attend college, he adds.
