Under Massachusetts law, parents may be expected to contribute financially to the college education of their unemancipated children.
The family court has authority to make an order for the payment of college education costs, depending on the financial circumstances of the parties. Parties often address the issue of college education costs, including its relationship to the payment of child support, in advance of college and in their agreements that they file with the court. However college education costs are often the subject of modification actions when the child reaches or is near college-age.
