    Default Ex-Husband Refusing to Pay for College

    Illinois - Ex-husband is refusing to pay for daughter's college. Divorce settlement outlines that he is responsible for half of the cost; however, he states he was refused a loan because of his current debt. Child support ended when daughter turned 18. Can his wages be garnished to help pay for college?

    File for contempt to have the order enforced. Request the court to order a garnishment.

    That's what I was thinking but I was told that Illinois courts wouldn't garnish wages for college. Do you think I can file the contempt charges myself or will I need an attorney. I would hate to spend more money that could be going to my child's education.

    If you can figure out how to prepare, file and serve a contempt petition and argue it in court by yourself, you can represent yourself. If not, it makes sense to get help from a lawyer.
