Strength of Relationship or Strength of Tuition

No longer can a child continuously put his or her hand out expecting money without attempting to have a relationship with their hold out parent. Parent-child relationships are a two way street, therefore children are also held responsible for reaching out for more than just money.

While factoring the amount of money a parent is responsible for paying in college expenses and child support, the court can use the status of relationship as one of the determining factors. Money is not cheap and this court ruling ("Black v. Black") is a primary example that children cannot just sit back and rely on their parents for everything.
