School is more expensive than ever. Even for parents whose young children go to free public institutions. The Denver Post, back in 2013, wrote about the rise of "mandatory fees." These are costs a school may pass on to parents for things like advanced placement courses, transportation and certain text books.
You're getting divorced from your child's other parent -- or maybe the two of you were never married. Either way, the relationship is over. While you agree that your ex should remain involved in your child's life, you don't intend to seek child support.
You've always been close with your spouse, so when you found out that they had been sleeping with someone else, you were furious. It was like your friendship and marriage were shattered at the same time.
As of July 1, 2020 certain sections of Colorado's child support guideline statute will be added so that additional fees are to be shared under the statutory authority. Additional fees to be shared through extraordinary adjustments to the schedule of child support or through reimbursement between the parties in proportion to their adjusted gross income will include:
There are several remedies to collect unpaid child support and maintenance whether it is for a period of a few months or several years. Depending on the circumstances you have several options available to you and either filing contempt of court or reducing unpaid support payments to a consolidated support judgement may be options for you.
Child support is a common issue in dispute between parents who have parted ways as a couple. When the parties are well-known, wealthy or both, this can be a public disagreement. For those who are involved in businesses where vast sums of money changes hands, it can be linked to the child support concerns and other aspects of family law. Such was the case with the entertainment entrepreneur Dame Dash.
Having a child in Colorado outside of wedlock may make some parentage issues complicated. If you have a child while unmarried or if your husband is not your baby's natural father, you may want to go through the steps to establish legal paternity. While establishing paternity does not by itself provide you with child support, it may make it easier for a court to order support sometime in the future. There are also several other potential benefits to establishing paternity.
Genetic research intended to reveal markers about hereditary illnesses has apparently had an unexpected -- and profound -- impact on some families.
Many different challenges may arise for non-custodial parents, from those involving child custody and visitation to problems with a former partner. However, child support issues can be especially complex and they may affect parents in different ways. For example, some parents may be unable to pay child support as a result of financial hardships, while others may purposely withhold payments because they are upset. Sometimes, non-custodial parents simply cannot pay what they owe because of a major change in their lives, such as the loss of a job that they were counting on.
Owing child support may become a consuming burden. Though you worked hard to make payments, your expenses prove too great, and you begin falling behind in your support. Most often, a judge orders a percentage of your income to pay for child support upon your divorce. However, if you cannot pay, Colorado laws state that your biweekly earnings may not be the only income subject to interception.
