In a divorce with children in or heading to college, the issue of payment for college tuition and expenses has to be dealt with by the parties. With today's skyrocketing college costs, many parties are choosing for their children to attend state schools in lieu of more expensive private schools. In the State of New Jersey, parties may have an obligation to pay for college costs after the children look towards whatever loans, grants or assistance they may be able to get on their own. In some instances, one party may choose to be wholly responsible for college costs in lieu of the other party taking less in alimony or equitable distribution. However, these options must be weighed carefully, as the ultimate costs may not be known in advance as the children may choose multiple alternatives as regards college and they may receive certain assistance not foreseen.

Often during a divorce process or postjudgment after a divorce, one of the parties wishes to relocate out of the State of New Jersey with a child of the marriage. If the other party does not consent to the removal of the child and if that issue is not part of a martrimonial settlement agreement, the parties will likely have to litigate this issue. Those parties that are the parent of primary residence will have to show good cause for the removal, which may include the presence of a job or family or special services for the child in the State where the party wishes to relocate.
