In North Carolina, the Court cannot order your spouse to contribute to a college savings plan. However, if such a provision is in a valid and enforceable separation agreement, the Court will be able to enforce this provision. Depending on your spouse, including this clause in a separation agreement may require some tough negotiating. It will be important to make sure that the agreement is drafted in a proper format to suit your specific needs. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators and are experienced in drafting these, and other creative terms, into separation agreements. We would be more than happy to speak with you about the options available to reach your goals.
