When a child support order is made in Colorado, it is not set in stone that it will remain the same for its duration until the child is no longer in need of support. Various changes can take place that will make it necessary for the child support order to be adjusted. For parents who are facing certain circumstances, there might be what is known as extraordinary adjustments to the schedule of basic child support. Knowing what must happen for this to take place will allow parents to be prepared and deal with it should it arise.
There are many people who serve in the military and reside in Colorado. Some have custody of children and will need to come to an agreement with the noncustodial parent when they are ordered to deploy.

The best interests of the child are paramount and, hopefully, the parents can put their lingering animosities aside and put that into perspective when deployment is on the horizon.
Any divorce in Colorado will be complicated with a litany of issues up for discussion.

When a Colorado couple has a child, the court will do its best to try and have both parents in the child's life. In general, if one parent has been granted child custody, then the other parent will receive visitation rights. However, not all cases are the same and in some instances, the best interests of the child are not suited by the noncustodial parent having extensive, unsupervised visitation rights. This is especially true if there was abuse as part of the relationship between the parents and the parent and child. Understanding how the law addresses these issues is critical for the custodial and noncustodial parents.
