Can my child’s father be ordered to pay for my child’s college education in Florida?

CHILD SUPPORT ATTORNEY FORT MYERS/NAPLES | DOR ATTORNEY FORT MYERS

No. The father would not be obligated to pay. If they want to pay, they can. However, it is not something that the court would be able to enforce. The only way the court may be able to enforce such is if it was already prearranged through a prenuptial agreement or any form of agreement that is written and is established with the court system. In Florida, once the child turns 18, most likely, the parent would not be obligated to pay any form of support payment.
