Longmont Child Support Lawyer
Colorado Child Support Guidelines
The state uses presumptive guidelines for determining child support. The calculations are based on each party’s gross monthly income and the number of overnights with the children each parent receives. Additionally, the court will consider which parent is paying for health insurance, day care expenses and other obligations.
I am an experienced Longmont child support attorney, with more than 10 years dedicated to divorce matters. At Shea L. Burchill, P.C., I represent men and women facing complicated child support issues. I help individuals pursue child support, and I help those facing support obligations. I can evaluate your situation from every angle to determine the best course of action. My comprehensive representation also extends to child support modification.
Self-Employed and Stay-at-Home Parents
Self-employed and stay-at-home parents should consult with a qualified lawyer to help them with the complex financial calculations related to their employment status. I have worked with forensic accountants to figure out the gross monthly income for self-employed individuals. Without proper guidance, your support could be more or less than what you deserve.
The court may impute income to stay-at-home parents for situations involving children over the age of two and a half years old. That means even though you are not working, the court may presume that you could make a certain amount each month. For stay-at-home parents, the issue of imputed income can be complicated. I have more than 10 years of experience guiding clients through child support matters.
