Two very common areas of negotiation however, revolve around child custody and child support issues. Both parents desire quality time with their child and hope to provide them with a good life and bright future. When you are legally separated or divorced, you do not have the same income as you did when you were married and there needs to be some monetary adjustments so you can properly provide for your child.
There are several guidelines regarding calculating child support in Colorado. Colorado state statute § 14-10-115 goes into detail about child support guidelines, and the determining factors that the court system will look at. The amount to be paid depends on such circumstances as the gross incomes of the mother and father, the number of children born before the children of the marriage, the number of children born of the marriage, daycare/schooling and/or insurance expenses, etc. Also taken into consideration is the number of overnight stays the children have with each parent. These are all circumstances a child support lawyer at our law firm goes over with our clients.
Our firm has a way of calculating the approximate amount of child support you are eligible for, taking into account all expenses and the amount of income earned by you and your spouse. We make sure you are well-informed and prepared for your case and we will keep you updated on all the developments of your case and how your objectives are being met.
Child Support Enforcement
If you or your spouse has failed to pay child support, the Colorado Child Support Enforcement has the authority to take money that is due as well as any past payments which were missed. There is a legal duty of support and obligation that parents must fulfill if they are mandated by the court to pay. The amount is typically reasonable under current circumstances and if your circumstances change, then the courts should be informed and the amount can be altered accordingly. We understand that times are hard and money can be tight.
