Talking with your children about your divorce can be challenging, but talking with them about college is exciting. College can be expensive, so it is important to understand how much you and your ex-spouse are obligated to pay.
In determining the cost of higher education, courts consider the following factors: 
Normally, the child’s assets and scholarships are first applied to college costs before either parent has an obligation to pay for the costs. In balancing these factors, courts help parties reach a fair and equitable contribution amount. Parents are also free to discuss and agree on what percentage each will pay and how loans are to be handled for college costs. Speaking with an attorney regarding college costs can help alleviate stress and make the process less intimidating.
