How To Make A Child Support Payment In Colorado

Child support is intended to provide for children’s basic needs and to allow children to maintain the same standard of living they were provided with prior to their parent’s separating. Child support payments are one of the most essential elements of a child custody case. Without this financial assistance, it can be extremely challenging to raise a child as a single parent. When you’re obligated to pay child support, there are several different ways to facilitate this important process.

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.
