Child Support in Colorado
In Colorado, parents are responsible for financially supporting their children until they reach the age of 19. Child support is often addressed during the divorce process or when unmarried parents end their relationship.
Colorado courts follow guidelines to determine how much a non-custodial parent should be expected to pay in child support.
Support amounts may be calculated based on:
- The gross income of both parents
- The number of children
- The parenting time schedule
- Daycare expenses
- Health insurance costs
Determining Spousal Support Awards
Spousal support – also known as spousal maintenance or alimony – is money paid to the dependent spouse by the higher-earning one. The court will assess the higher-earning spouse’s ability to pay and the lesser-earning spouse’s needs when determining whether to award alimony.
The court will consider factors such as:
- The duration of the marriage
- The marital standard of living
- The education of both spouses
- The age and health of each party
