Child Support Formula
Calculating the Exact Amount of Child Support Involves an Attorney’s Help
In Colorado family law cases, child support is determined based on a formula established by the legislature with the advice of many different divorce lawyers and judges.
That formula considers a broad range of factors such as:
- Other support
- Health insurance
- Daycare expense
- Uncovered medical costs
It may not include things like soccer camps, school clothes, supplemental school programs, or other extracurricular activities. Then again, it might. Despite having a solid formula, much of the data used is still subject to interpretation and circumstance. No two cases are identical.
Choose a Child Support Lawyer Who Is Right for You
You should work with an attorney who has a firm understanding of child support laws, and who won’t treat your case as if it meets a “one size fits all” formula. Your attorney’s goal should be to provide the high-quality representation.
