Some colleges are now requiring not only both parents’ financial information regardless of whether they are custodial or non-custodial they are also requiring each parent’s spouse’s financial information as well.  Have you planned for this in your divorce agreement?  For more information about financial aid see the article “Before You Say ‘I Do,’ Consider Financial Aid for College” by Todd Weaver, a college financial advisor.

If you have questions or concerns about how this may affect your situation, please contact Massachusetts family law lawyer, Attorney Michelle Raymond at mmr@dcdclaw.com or 508-541-3000.
