Does the current child support order require that he pay for college? If so, does it have any restrictions on the type of school ( private or public) which needs to be paid for?
States that parties respective obligations to the expenses of their childrens college or trade school education shall be determined pursuant to Par 2-513 of Il Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act, upon due notice and petition.
So I looked this up and realize it requires me to contribute- which I have offered- however, my ex wife is offring $5000 towards the $58K and expecting me to cover rest. And I am considering moving residency to Florida as I may be unemployed shortly..company is not doing well and they are considering closing...so does my child support/college remain governed by Illinois law?
