Lakewood Child Support Lawyers

Though both sides love their children, child support remains a difficult issue for most divorcing couples.

Colorado child support guidelines govern child support orders issued in our state. Although judges are allowed to deviate from the child support guidelines in certain circumstances, it does not happen often. The best way to prevail in establishing a fair support order is to ensure that you have all of the information needed and a superior grasp of the law. As your lawyer, it is our job to do that.

Studies show that children who receive sufficient support do better in school and later in their careers.

Child Support Calculator

To calculate child support prior to divorce proceedings, we will need to collect financial information from you. When we meet for our initial consultation, you should bring the information we will need to calculate child support. This information, which includes pay stubs and/or tax returns for both parents, daycare receipts, and health insurance premiums for the children, will be critical in determining the proper level of support.

Arvada Child Support Modification Attorneys

As time passes, the calculations made in your original divorce decree may become less relevant. Incomes change, people change jobs, and children themselves get older and have different needs. For this reason it is often necessary to petition the court for a modification in the decree to reflect more recent realities.
