How Much Will My Colorado
Child Support Payments Be?
In Colorado, the amount of child support owed is determined by utilizing the child support guidelines set forth by Colorado’s child support statutes COL. REV. STAT. §14-10-115. According to these statutes, the amount of child support is calculated as a percentage (roughly 20% for one child and an additional 10% for each additional child) of the parents’ combined gross income, which is then split between both parents if financially feasible depending on the financial resources and needs of the child’s parents.
