If you are going through a divorce, separation, or custody action, you will need to be prepared to address child support. In Colorado, child support is calculated pursuant to statutory guidelines based on each parent’s income, the number of overnights each parent spends with the child(ren), the cost of health insurance, and the cost of child care. There are several factors that may complicate the calculation of child support, such as a parent who is unemployed, a parent whose income is difficult to calculate, or a child who has special needs or extraordinary expenses. If child support is an issue in your case, you should consult with an attorney who is experienced in handling the nuances of child support calculations. At Cooper Ramp Cage Bucar Lewis, our attorneys understand these nuances and are here to provide guidance for you and your family.
