Is it true that if the non-custodial parent and child do not have a relationship then he won't be expected to help with college expenses?
If your child refuses to have a relationship with the non-custodial parent, the court may decide not to order the non-custodial parent to help with college expenses. If the non-custodial parent does not choose to see the child, the court would still likely order the parent to help with college expenses. You should discuss the situation with a local attorney who could advise you what the judge on your case may decide.
