What is the test for making a reasonable contribution from the child for educational costs?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Hamilton v. Popp, 2014 BCSC 506 (CanLII):

Finally, under s. 3(2)(b), courts have wide discretion in determining what is fair and just in the circumstances. And a reasonable contribution from the child for their educational cost is required: Rebenchuk v. Rebenchuk, 2007 MBCA 22 at para. 45.

The claimant cites Bockhold v. Bockhold, 2006 BCCA 472 in support of her position that the child support Rogers J. ordered in 2008 ought to continue.
