Good morning. Was there ever any agreement between the child and parent to pay back expenses?
Thank you for the additional information. As a parent, I certainly understand. Unless there was an agreement to repay you if she failed to attend, failed, withdrew, etc, you could not sue her. You had no legal obligation to pay for her college expenses and if you did so voluntarily, a court would not award you damages, as a result of her actions. The court would see this as a gift and something you wanted to do to help but was not conditioned upon anything.
