Denver Child Support Lawyers
Child Support Guidlines in Colorado
Child support is compensation supplied by one parent to the other parent to aid with the expenses for their shared child. It ordinarily ends when the child turns 19. The amount is determined by application of court child support guidelines or an amount determined by the court to be reasonable, so the amount is not necessarily a simple calculation. If you are involved in a dispute, make sure you have help from the dependable child support lawyers at Kaplan Law L.L.C. who know how to fight for you.
Who Is Legally Responsible for Child Care in Colorado?
Both the husband and wife are legally responsible for the care of their shared child. In Colorado, child support is based primarily on the parents’ gross incomes and the number of overnights each parent has with his/her children. In addition, parents are required to pay their proportionate share of extraordinary expenses in the areas of education, medical care, and extracurricular activities. Often the largest dispute is in establishing a parent's income, based on Colorado law and not IRS regulations.
