Enforcement of contractual Obligation to Pay College Expenses in Florida

Enforcement of contractual Obligation to Pay College Expenses in Florida

Contempt is not available to enforce an obligation to pay college expenses. "Where a party is obligated to pay his adult child's college expenses pursuant to a marital settlement agreement, the obligation "is not child support, but rather a contractual obligation arising from the marital settlement agreement" Sutton v. Sutton, 701 So. 2d 370, 372 (Fla. 2d DCA 1997) (emphasis added). Thus, contempt is not available to enforce the parties' contractual obligation to pay their adult son's college expenses. Nicoletti v. Nicoletti, 901 So. 2d 290, 292 (Fla. 2d DCA 2005)" Riera v. Riera
