College Planning
for
Divorced and Remarried Parents

Divorced or Remarried Scenarios

 

  • Is your child 50-50 between you and your EX and what does that mean?
  • Does your EX still live in the same accommodation but separate?
  • Is your EX unwilling to support their child going to College?
  • Is your EX unwilling to provide their financial information ?
  • Have you lost contact with your EX?
  • What does having a new spouse mean for financial aid?

 

Is this You?

 

  • Do you feel that you cannot afford College for your child(ren)?
  • If you do pay for College, do you feel that you will either not be able to retire or retire much later?
  • Are you concerned that all Colleges are expensive and there are no deals out there?
  • Do you feel that saving for College will penalize you?
  • Would you like a guide that will educate you on this complex and expensive process and provide a strategy to get your child into College with the least amount of cost possible?

 

Our process is as follows:

 

  • determine what you will be expected to pay (EFC), which is not the same as what you can afford!
  • determine if you qualify for financial aid
  • determine if you qualify for merit aid (scholarships)
  • determine your 1 year and 4 year cost for each College
  • provide a list of Colleges for your student’s major that provide the most financial and/or merit aid
  • provide ideas to enhance financial and merit aid
  • calculate student loan projections
  • collaborate with you to come up with a budget
  • perform a College GAP analysis
  • provide College savings strategies
  • provide strategies to minimize the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and maximize Financial Aid
  • fill out your Financial Aid forms (FAFSA & CSS Profile)
  • assess and appeal family circumstance changes and College Award letters to the College
