Child Support in Colorado

Child support is a legal obligation that ensures parents contribute financially to the upbringing and care of their children. It is designed to cover the costs of essential needs such as housing, food, clothing, healthcare, education, and extracurricular activities. 

Child support aims to provide children with the same standard of living they would have enjoyed if their parents lived together. In that regard, child support is the child’s right and is not based on the desires or inclinations of parents. It applies to divorced and separated parents and parents who have never married and live apart. 

The Determination of Child Support in Colorado

In Colorado, the general rule is that the non-custodial parent is responsible for paying child support. This is the parent who spends the least amount of parenting time with the child. 

Colorado guidelines determine child support. The Child Support Services Program provides a Child Support Calculator to determine child support amounts in Colorado. 

This calculator considers relevant factors such as: 

  • Parental gross income
  • Child income, if any
  • Number of children being supported
  • Parenting time percentages of each parent
  • Health insurance and daycare expenses
  • Alimony being paid or received by a parent
  • Financial support obligations for children from previous relationships

 The calculations help parents and the court understand expected financial obligations. An obligation derived from the calculation is assumed to be accurate. However, courts have the discretion to adjust the payment amount up or down based on the individual circumstances of each case. 

Understanding Child Support Modification in Colorado

Life circumstances can change, and when they do, it may be necessary to modify an existing child support agreement. Whether you are seeking an increase or decrease in child support payments, it's important to understand the process and requirements for modification in Colorado.

Factors that may warrant a modification of child support include:

  • Change in income for either parent
  • Change in the child's needs or expenses
  • Change in parenting time or custody arrangement
  • Healthcare or medical expenses for the child

To modify child support in Colorado, you must file a motion with the court and provide evidence supporting your request for modification. This may include financial documentation, proof of changed circumstances, and other relevant information.

 

Our experienced child support attorneys at Peek Goldstone, LLC can guide you through the process of seeking a modification and ensure that your rights and the best interests of your child are protected. We understand the complexities of Colorado child support laws and will work diligently to achieve a fair and reasonable outcome for you and your family.

What Governmental Agency Oversees Child Support in Colorado?

In Colorado, child support is handled by the Child Support Services Program, a part of the Colorado Department of Human Services. This program is responsible for managing individual child support orders and ensuring that financial support is provided to children per state guidelines and laws.

The Child Support Services Program performs various functions, including:

  • Establishing Paternity: The program helps parents establish legal paternity, ensuring that both parents are recognized and responsible for providing financial support for their child.
  • Determining Support Amounts: The program calculates child support obligations based on the Colorado Child Support Guidelines. 
  • Collecting and Distributing Payments: The program facilitates the collection of child support payments from the non-custodial parent and ensures timely distribution to the custodial parent or caregiver.
  • Enforcement of Support Orders: The program takes appropriate measures to enforce child support orders when necessary, using wage garnishment, interception of tax refunds, and other legal avenues to ensure compliance.

    "So glad to have met them both"
    Brian Klein and Brie Garhart were just outstanding with my case. Throughout the process they listened to my concerns and worked hard to get the outcome that was more than satisfactory for me. They were with me all the way calming my fears and at the end celebrating the outcome. So glad to have met them both and to have had the opportunity for them to work on my case and I call them friends.

    "Amanda Peek and Scott Goldstone are the absolute best in Colorado!!!!"
    Amanda Peek and Scott Goldstone are the absolute best in Colorado!!!! I could not ask for better attorneys. Thank you everyone on the Peek Goldstone team for all of the hard work you do. You all are awesome! Mr. Scott Goldstone has been my attorney since 2015. During the storms I have had to go through in order to have a relationship with my son, Scott has flawlessly guided and advised me through it all. I had the chance to work with Amanda as well, and she is just as wonderful as Scott. I would not be where I am at today with my son if it wasn't for Scott and Amanda. Thank you both so much for everything you have done and are continuing to do for my son and I. I am very grateful to have the both of you in my life. A huge shout out to all of the paralegals and other staff members working for the law office of Peek Goldstone. Everytime I call the office, you are very professional and helpful!

    "I highly recommend Brian Klein at Peek Goldstone"
    Having received poor advice from a different law office and attorney, I was feeling distressed due to the criminal charges made against me. Seeing an ad for Peek Goldstone in my local paper, I gave them a call. Right from the initial consultation I knew I had found the right person for the job! Brian Klein treated me with respect and was nothing short of brilliant in his ability to leave no stone unturned in order to represent me in the best possible light. Will you have to pay for his services? Yes. Will it be worth it? Yes! I highly recommend Brian Klein at Peek Goldstone for your criminal case.

      "Incredibly easy to understand and trust."
      I worked with Nicholas Ohmann on a consultation, and he did an excellent job looking at my situation from all angles, and provided a few possible courses of action. No BS, no pushing, and incredibly easy to understand and trust. Depending on how my case unfolds, he's the first one I'm calling if I need further representation. Highly recommend!
      - Alissa
      "I could not have asked for better representation."

      Came to Scott with a very difficult case where opposing party already had a few victories thanks to another attorney I hired that did not do so great and I needed them reversed.

      Scott diligently set out to get them corrected. One by one they all fell. All the while he was VERY good at keeping me informed of the process and ensuring that he was going after just what I wanted. I could not have asked for better representation.
