Understanding The Factors In The Child Support Formula
In Colorado, child support is based on a formula. Although there is little deviation from the state-mandated guidelines, we can help make sure only relevant income and expenses are considered in your child support payments. The formula considers a variety of factors, including:
- The income of each parent
- The number of children
- The lifestyle the children are accustomed to
Many clients already have a general understanding of the amount they will be expected to pay, but we can answer any additional questions. Schedule your appointment with our lawyer by contacting the firm online or by calling 719-900-3792.
