A court in Modena, Italy has ruled that a father must abide by an earlier court order, made on his divorce, that he pay for the upkeep of his son through tertiary education - even though his son is now 28.

This is a big issue in Italy, where an incredible 65% of 18 to 34 year olds still live with their parents. In the UK, the figure is barely half that, at 34%. However, disputes over who pays for a child's university education can still arise and we can advise on dealing with them as part of an overall financial agreement.
