Whether father is liable to pay educational expenses to Major son?

But just because there’s no legally imposed obligation doesn’t mean a parent can’t be contractually obligated. If the parents have agreed to pay for private school education, college tuition/expenses, or any other expenses above and beyond child support, either in a stipulation or as part of a marital settlement agreement or judgment, the parties have entered a legally binding contract. Assuming the parents entered in the contract/stipulation freely, voluntarily, and knowingly, the court will likely enforce its terms, particularly if each parent was represented by counsel at the time of the agreement.
