Poor little guy never saw it coming…

Separated or divorced parents face unique challenges regarding the financial impact of preparing for and paying for their children to attend college. Luckily, there are ways to handle the situation without breaking the bank!

Next week my firm is hosting a complimentary lunch event called College Smarts: Understand Your Options to Help Protect Your Family’s Financial Future, and I’m writing to extend the invitation.

The presenter, Gregg Cohen of Campus Bound, will cover topics including:

  • What are some of the unique considerations that separated or divorced parents should make when it comes to reducing the cost or paying for college?
  • Is that expensive private college worth it?
  • Ways to make college less expensive, regardless of your eligibility for need-based aid (FAFSA).
  • How much debt is too much and other considerations when determining your college budget.
  • How to identify colleges that are a good fit academically, socially and financially.
  • What are the best ways for grandparents to help save and pay for college and what are the pitfalls?

The event is scheduled to begin at 12:00 noon on September 30, and will be held at Burns & Levinson’s Boston office. Lunch will be served.  If you’re interested in attending, please click here to register. It’s sure to be a very productive lunch hour!
