Can my ex-spouse make me pay for a private school for our child in Florida?
Private school education and the payment for private school education is determined based on a couple of factors. Does the family have the ability to continue paying for private school now that they are supporting two separate households? It also takes into consideration the lifestyle of the parties and the minor child. Have the parties always sent their children to private school? In that event, if the children have been in private school and the parents can continue to afford it, the court would award private school. However, if there is no history of private school in the past, the court will likely not require private school attendance.
