Fort Collins / Northern Colorado Child Support
In Colorado, child support is calculated using a formula provided by the state which factors into consideration the incomes of both parties. It is important to have experienced counsel to make sure all relevant income is entered into the calculation.
The amount the state formula provides is less arguable than the numbers that go into the calculation. Even though the interests of their own children are at stake, some parents present false numbers to bias the outcome.
Family law attorney Dina Christiansen, knows which areas are altered most often, including self-employment records, business ownership and extraordinary expenses. She knows what to look for, where to look, and has your best interests in mind.
Fort Collins / Northern Colorado Child Support Payment Lawyer
Our office gets involved at every stage of child support issues, from temporary orders of support to permanent orders. Beyond the court’s permanent order, we assist clients with enforcement orders (when the parent ordered to pay has not) and with modifying support orders when financial or other circumstances change. Colorado uses a formula to determine whether the change in income warrants modification.
When the economy is in a downturn, courts are often receptive to modifying child support. But the change must be substantial: a 10 percent loss of income or more, and it must be predictably long term.
When your child’s well-being is on the line, you want a lawyer who is experienced in child support law and who has obtained positive outcomes in numerous child support proceedings. This describes Dina Christiansen and the Christiansen Law Firm. Call us with your concerns today.
