Q: My ex-husband agreed to pay college and isn't. What state do I start the legal process?
My ex-husband agreed to pay college and isnt. Divorced in CO. My son and I live in NY and the father lives in Minn. My son attends college in NY. Where do I start the legal process?
A: Yiu can initiate the process in New York state. You will need to obtain a Certified copy of your judgment of divorce or order that outlines the obligation to pay for college expenses. That then gets registered in New York State and we can pursue a violation from there. This is a matter my firm handles on a daily basis.
