College Strategies for Divorced Families

November 14, 2017

When the college-age children of divorced families begin their journey out of the nest and onto the quad, the best gift to give them is the peace of mind that comes in knowing their foundation is still there. The last thing they want—as they’re preparing for their SATs, ACTs and writing their essays—is to worry about the conflict between mom and dad regarding which colleges they can think about, because mom and dad have not come to an agreement in advance.

 

In this blog post, Lauren Behrman examines four of the most important issues to take into account for divorced (or soon-to-be divorced) families sending a child off to school:

 

  • Timing,

  • Choice of school,

  • Visiting schools, and

  • Financing

 

Preventing the differences between you and your co-parent from spilling out on college planning, school tours, or discussion about finances will help ensure that your child’s college process, and anticipating this transition, will be smooth and unburdened by parental conflict. In the end, this will empower your child to enjoy that new freedom, explore exciting new academic challenges, meet amazing people, and make you proud.
