Calculating Child Support: Colorado Guidelines
C.R.S. 14-10-115 provides guidelines for the amount of child support that is fair for any given child support case. These guidelines factor in the combined gross income of both parents and the number of children, but many other relevant factors will factor into the final decision.
When determining child support, courts are required to consider:
- The financial resources of the child
- The financial resources of the custodial parent
- The standard of living the child would have enjoyed had the marriage not been dissolved
- The physical and emotional condition of the child and his or her educational needs
- The financial resources and needs of the noncustodial parent
Whether you need to request child support, modify current child support orders, or calculate support in your divorce, you can depend on our experienced child support attorneys. We have the experience, tenacity, and compassion you need on your side.
