Determining Child Support in Colorado - Split SimpleChild support is undeniably one of the most acrimonious issues in a divorce. Determining how child support will be structured is a difficult question, and it's one you need to get right.

At Split Simple, we know you do want to get this issue right. We know that your children are the most important things in the world to you. We know you want what's best for them. Divorce mediation helps make that happen.

In Split Simple's divorce mediation sessions, we keep discussions focused on arriving at a fair solution that reflects every party’s best interests. When it comes to child support or any other child issues, we'll ensure the best interests of the child are always the foremost consideration.

Colorado has a number of guidelines for determining child support payments. They include:

  • The gross income of both the custodial and the non-custodial parent
  • Both parents' potential income
  • Cost of living
  • Cost of child care and insurance
  • Educational and travel expenses

Split Simple's attorney-mediators will combine these guidelines with sophisticated financial planning software that will take into account all relevant variables. Using these tools and our decades of experience, we will find fair and equitable solutions that set both parents and all children up for success.
