Decision Date: 
June 28, 2013
District: 
1st Dist.
Division/County: 
Cook Co., 2d Div.
Justice: 
HARRIS
Holding: 
Affirmed.
Wife filed petition for adult children's college expenses in pending dissolution proceedings, not yet ruled upon by court and no settlement agreement yet reached. Court properly found that adult children lacked standing to bring their claim and denying their request to join or intervene in their parents' dissolution proceedings. Wife will adequately represent children's interests; petition does not seek contribution from children toward college and living expenses, and alleges that husband has financial resources to pay entire expenses. (CONNORS and SIMON, concurring.)
