Caring for a child inevitably involves a significant financial demand. Each family is different, however, and that demand can vary depending on the income and expenses of each parent.
As Summit County child support attorneys, we understand the difficulties that parents face when either trying to receive adequate financial support or struggling to provide that support. We take a comprehensive look at what each parent and child needs, what can reasonably be provided, and how to make sure that those needs are met and protected through strong legal agreements.
In some cases, we can skillfully negotiate agreements. In others, we must strongly advocate for our clients in the courtroom. We do what is necessary to get the job done without overextending our clients or dragging things out unnecessarily. Each family's well-being is our top priority.

Breckenridge Lawyers Handling Parental Rights In Colorado
Child support in Colorado is outlined clearly by a formula that takes into account the basics of parental income and the child's primary residence or overnight parenting time arrangement. While the determination of child support is formulaic, there can be numerous issues and disputes regarding what numbers actually go into the formula. Our attorneys include a former family court judge who can fight to ensure an accurate determination of child support.
Not all child support issues are this simple, however, which is why we work to modify the basic calculations to account for other important factors, as well, such as:
- Child care costs such as day care
- Health insurance or medical care expenses
- Extraordinary expenses such as participation in certain activities or unique bill payment arrangements
- Unreported income
- Voluntary unemployment or underemployment
- Parenting time for the parent who does not hold the child's primary residence
These different adjustments can dramatically change the way child support is structured. It is crucial that the attorney you work with understands how and when to be flexible in these cases so that you can find a solution that works for your family's unique needs.
