Colorado Springs Child Support Attorneys

Experienced Child Support Lawyers Serving Families in El Paso County, CO

Every parent has specific rights and responsibilities under Colorado law and one important responsibility is to provide financial support for your child’s basic needs. If two parents were never or are no longer married, courts realize that it is not always fair to expect each parent to provide equal financial support. One parent may earn more money, have greater expenses, or have other challenges that prevent them from providing as much as the other parent. For this reason, the court may order one parent to pay a certain amount of child support to the other until the child turns 19 years old. Let our experienced child support lawyers at The Gasper Law Group help.

Child support is available to primarily residential parents who are separated, divorced, or unmarried. Child support determinations are an integral part of any divorce case that involves children, and when you file a divorce petition, you can bring the issue before the court.

If two parents were never married, child support is often determined as part of either a paternity or allocation of parental responsibilities action brought about by a biological mother seeking support or by a biological father seeking legal paternal rights.

In either case, it is critical for any parent involved in a child support case to seek representation from a highly experienced Colorado Springs child support attorney. The Gasper Law Group’s family law attorneys regularly handle child support matters and understand the complex laws that can be involved.

How is Child Support Determined in Colorado?

When deciding how much the primary residential parent will receive in child support, courts will look to the Colorado Child Support Guidelines, which are intended to provide an objective basis for determining the expenses associated with children across a variety of incomes. The guidelines provide a chart that looks at both parents’ gross income, the number of children to support, and the number of overnights for each parent and certain qualified expenses. With this, the court can provide a basic child support payment.

As we all know, finances can change over time and the initial child support order may no longer be appropriate. For instance:

  • The parent paying support may have had a financial windfall that warrants a higher amount of support
  • The parent paying support may have lost a job or suffered an illness that makes it impossible for them to pay the ordered amount
  • The parent receiving support may have had a windfall that warrants an adjustment in the percentage of support they require
  • The needs of the child may have changed
  • The parenting time schedule may have changed
  • An older child may have emancipated, resulting in fewer children being included in the support calculation

In any of these situations, our attorneys can help you request a modification of the child support order.

Colorado Child Support Modifications

There may come a time following your divorce or legal separation when you need to modify child support. Perhaps you or your ex-spouse had a change in finances, such as a large promotion at work, or even a reduction in pay as careers change.  An older child may have emancipated and child support may be recalculated without that child or either parent may have additional children who may alter the calculation. There are many cases where the financial obligations to the children need to change. It is important to be aware of the information you need to provide to modify child support and how an attorney can help the process along.

At The Gasper Law Group, our family law attorneys understand the confusion that might arise from the need to modify child support. We have helped many clients over the years handle this and other family law matters in Colorado courts.

    "The professionalism, guidance, and candor I’ve received from each person in this law firm has been beyond reproach."

    I’m not one to have an extensive experience with law firms or lawyers and court in general. However, the professionalism, guidance, and candor I’ve received from each person in this law firm have been beyond reproach. Anytime, I mean, anytime, I’ve had a question about my case and the way forward, I was met with a friendly and constructive conversation about my case. There was never a doubt in my mind, that I made the right choice when I selected this law firm to represent me. Caryn and Stacie have been a wonderful blessing to my life and my legal proceedings. If you are looking for a no-BS law firm that has a significant reputation in the Springs area, I absolutely recommend this one. Even though I hope to not have to deal with this again, fingers crossed and every lucky charm, I’d trust this law firm with my representation to handle the hard stuff and give me ease with court proceedings. Thank you all for what you do and have done for me, my family, and my career. Bless you all.
