Who is responsible for college?

In most cases, college is not covered under the standard child support agreement because it occurs after the age of majority. However, some states do require that non-custodial parents contribute toward college tuition expenses (check your state laws to see if this applies to you). In these cases, courts use common sense, asking whether the parent would have paid if he still had custody or if the child could have reasonably expected contributions toward tuition.
