CHILD SUPPORT; COLLEGE EDUCATION, A CHILD CAN INTERVENE IN PARENTS’ DIVORCE SEEKING MONEY FOR COLLEGE
A child can intervene in his parents’ marital settlement agreement to enforce a provision that directly benefits him, the Pennsylvania Superior Court has ruled.
A unanimous three-judge panel ruled Aug. 11 in Weber v. Weber that Michael Weber has standing to seek enforcement of a section of his divorced parents’ agreement that would require his father to pay his share of the expenses Weber incurred during undergraduate and graduate school. The decision vacated a ruling of the Crawford County Court of Common Pleas.
