. However, a growing number of states (Alabama, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina, Utah and Washington) have enacted laws that can require a noncustodial parent to pay a child’s college expenses, as part of the parent’s “child support” obligation. in New York, child support must be paid until the child reaches the age of 21 if the child attending college full time. Normally, the amount of support paid is calculated by a formula. But in the situation that you describe, it would be resolved through a settlement agreement. This is because the of the split living arrangements and because you are already providing for her college support. Additionally, because your daughter is of age,you would be providing support directly to her, and not to your ex. Or in your case, your ex will likely have to pay some support since your daughter is with you the majority of the time.To give you an idea of the amounts, this link will provide you access to a support calculator. But that will just give you a rough idea. The tuition payments count toward the over all support.http://www.alllaw.com/calculators/childsupport/new_yorkI hope the information I have provided is useful to you.
