Determining Child Support Is More Than Just A Calculation

When a child lives with one parent, the court will generally order child support based on a formula. Your child support lawyer at Keane Law can explain the formula, how it works, and how it affects you.

The Colorado child support guidelines take into account a number of factors in determining how much the non-custodial parent should pay.

  • The income of both parents will be entered into the formula.
  • The formula considers overnights and other parenting time by the non-custodial parent.
  • If a parent provides additional expenditures such as health insurance and other extraordinary expenses, that will affect the formula.
  • If the primary residential parent is caring for a child 30 months old or younger, the formula will consider that.
  • The formula guidelines are not an exact method of calculating child support in every case. Special circumstance may convince the court to raise or lower the payment.

With the rights of parenthood, there are responsibilities. We will explain the Colorado child support guidelines and help you understand how they will affect your rights and obligations. We know that you want the best for your children and your restructured family. We share that goal with you.
