Colorado Child Support and Parenting Plan Requirements
A parenting plan is an arrangement that you make with a spouse or co-parent to determine your children’s care following the end of your relationship. This may include information on time-sharing, scheduling options, and who has primary or joint parental responsibility over the children.
Child support refers to periodic, ongoing payments made by one parent to another to provide for their children’s basic needs. This support may pay for:
And other costs necessary for the child’s well-being
Like the terms of your parenting plan, the amount and frequency of child support will be determined by the agreement that you and your spouse or co-parent make following the end of your relationship.
When Can You Modify a Parenting Plan or Child Support Agreement?
After agreeing to a parenting plan, circumstances may change, and you may want to adjust the terms of your arrangement. You can modify a parenting plan or child support agreement if it is in the best interests of your children or family.
For example, if one parent moves out of state and your child wants to stay in the same school, you may want to shift primary parenting time to the local parent. If a parent suddenly loses his or her job, the child support agreement may need to be modified to reflect the new financial situation.
How Mediation Can Help Resolve Your Modification Case
Depending on your circumstances, you could modify a child support agreement or parenting plan by going to court. However, you may want to choose mediation to resolve your dispute. In some cases, the court may require you to attend mediation when modifying a parenting plan or child support.
Mediation is a preferable alternative to litigation for many parents, as it offers more control and a faster resolution compared to going to court. At Divorce Resolutions, LLC, a trained Denver child support mediator will help you and your spouse modify your parenting plan in a way that works best for you.
