Use grandkids' college fund for custody dispute??
When the twins were born I began to save for their college education in my own Roth IRA, the maximum annual contribution. I was planning on 16+ years growth. As the owner and contributor I can withdraw from the account any amount at any time.
My son is now (six months) the unwilling spouse in a high conflict divorce and custody battle. I am questioning my position that the grandtwin's college fund is inviolable, and weighing the pros and cons of spending some or all of the twin's fund for his myriad legal battles to counter parental alienation. His lawyer is doing a good job, but every email, phone call, letter, and motion costs $250/hour.
