When a child's parents separate, child support and custody can quickly become the most disputed topics. In Colorado, like many states, child support is often determined by a child support calculator. This equation takes numerous factors into account to make a fair determination. A seemingly minor fact can significantly alter the amount of child support under the formula. In some circumstances, a court may deviate from the child support formula entirely. Before a court issues a child support order in your case, you should consult with an experienced attorney.
Our LunaLaw, LLC, attorneys comb through the facts of your case to ensure that the child support order in your case is fair both to you and to your children. Appearing in court on a family law case is always emotional for parents, and a small oversight can lead to years of too much or too little child support. You should have a skilled and knowledgeable attorney on your side to ensure that your interests are protected.
In calculating child support, the biggest factors are the earnings (or earning potential) of both parents and who will have primary custody. Numerous other factors must also be addressed to ensure that the support payments are accurate, including:
Medical insurance premiums
Extracurricular activity costs
Special needs considerations
