Do I Have To Pay For Private School?
One of the questions that parents sometimes ask when we are working with them to determine child support or to negotiate a modification of a child support agreement, is whether or not they will be required to pay for private school. In many cases, no, you will not be required to pay for your child or children to attend private school. If your children are already going to private school and you can afford to continue sending them, then the judge will probably order that you continue paying for their private school education. The judge may be willing to consider other arrangements if you can demonstrate a clear reason why you should not be required to pay for your child's private school. A Jacksonville divorce attorney from our firm will be able to help you present your case and advocate on your behalf to help you achieve the outcome that is in your and your child's best interests.
