Littleton Child Support Lawyers
Child support is one of the many concerns parents face when getting a divorce. Both parents are worried about the financial impact and whether they will be able to meet expenses now that two households must be financed.
At the law office of Jolein A. Harro, P.C., located in Littleton, Colorado, our lawyers have been working with divorcing families for more than 25 years. We are conversant in all areas of family law and the statutes that apply to child support.
The state of Colorado has instituted a formula for establishing support orders that considers a variety of factors. Though the formula is established by law, there is some room for adjustment depending on your family's circumstances.

Child support is determined by combining both parents' gross monthly incomes and adjusting for the following:
- Alimony that is either paid or received
- Prior child support obligations
- Childcare costs
- Health insurance costs for the children (including uninsured medical expenses)
- Extra expenses (such as private school)
- Extra medical expenses (if a child has a special medical need)
Child support is also affected by the amount of parenting time each parent has and whether there are travel expenses involved in exercising visitation. If a parent is unable to work due to disability, cares for a child under 30 months of age, or is pursuing an education in order to become self-sufficient, any income that parent has will not be considered for the purposes of a child support obligation.
