Colorado Child Support Law

Colorado law guarantees all children the right to receive proper medical care and financial support from their parents and guardians. The responsibility for a child’s medical care and financial support is usually determined by applying a formula that considers all sources of income, expenses, and the distribution of parenting time, including:

  • Monthly gross incomes of each party
  • Age and needs of each child
  • Amount of time the child spends with each parent, particularly overnight stays
  • Number of children involved
  • Health insurance costs
  • Daycare costs or any other work related child care expenses
  • Whether a parent is currently paying Child Support for another child

While child support calculations may seem easy, there actually many subtle factors that can complicate the process, and require special care and attention. Working with an experienced child support attorney on your side can make all the difference, and means you and your child’s interests will be put front and center.

Once the child support calculations have been processed, your child’s financial support will continue until they are emancipated – meaning 19 years old or graduating from high school. Colorado makes special exceptions for children with disabilities.

By choosing to work with our experienced and knowledgeable child support attorneys, you can rest assured that we will fight to reach the most favorable resolution that protects and supports the financial futures of you and your children.
