Littleton Child Support

Dedicated Child Support Attorneys Helping Littleton Clients

The cost of raising a child to legal adulthood these days is significant. Childcare, medical expenses, extracurricular activities, and insurance all contribute to the high expense of properly caring for a child, even more so for families going through a divorce or separation. Child support is meant to be a solution to imbalances between households so that children get the financial support they need, regardless of whether their parents are together. You may be concerned about how a child support case will affect you financially or you may wonder if a new life situation should change your current child support payments. A Littleton child support lawyer will be able to assist you in answering all your questions and even ones you haven’t thought to ask. With a sole focus on family law, the attorneys at Plog & Stein, P.C. are highly experienced in all types of child support matters. We are committed to helping Littleton clients ensure they are treated fairly when facing child support litigation.

Child Support Rights in Littleton

Whether you are paying or receiving child support, we can help. Child support can be sought in a divorce, custody, or stand-alone child support case. In each type of case, there are various rules and statutory provisions which can have an impact on both the amount of support paid, whether back support is due, and when it’s appropriate to seek a child support modification. Each attorney at our firm knows what’s needed to prove your case and the arguments necessary to further your objectives towards a proper financial outcome. With each case, we use both our experience and knowledge of the law to diligently advocate for our clients.

In the state of Colorado, child support is determined by a statutory formula and support table detailed in C.R.S. 14-10-115. There are worksheet calculations that you can perform on your own to get an estimate of your particular child support situation. However, to get a true understanding of what your payment could or should be, it is highly advisable to speak with a seasoned Littleton child support attorney. Income, for example, is one of the primary factors that will go into the support equation, but multiple complications can arise when determining exactly what income counts towards the calculation.

Should you find yourself attending a family law hearing in front of a judge to determine the right amount of child support for your situation, you could end up having to testify. This involves answering various questions about your financial circumstances pertaining to the child support equation. For example, the court will want to know if you receive bonuses or commission as part of your compensation at work, if you have any other children for whom you are financially responsible, and details about who pays for what in your children’s lives.

If you are at the start of a divorce case, you may be able to ask the court for a temporary order of child support to help sustain the family during the proceedings of the case. You should note that temporary orders are not meant to influence the establishment of permanent orders but to establish a workable status quo for everyone involved while your case proceeds.

At Plog & Stein, we also represent Littleton child support clients with modification of child support, enforcement of support orders, and collecting back child support. Consulting with an experienced attorney early on can make the difference when it comes time to settle or go to trial. Sound legal advice from an experienced family law attorney allows our clients to make better decisions regarding the paths they choose.

Choose the Right Firm for your Littleton Child Support Case

While the laws regarding child support are meant to be relatively straightforward, in practice the worksheet calculations can get confusing. The last thing you want is to assume you know exactly what your child support payments will be and then have it come out vastly different in the final resolution. That’s why it’s so important to seek the counsel of a qualified Littleton child support attorney from the start.

At the end of the day he was able to produce a settlement that was fair to both parties.
I highly recommend Stephen Plog for anyone in need of a top notch domestic relations attorney. After a 27 year marriage, Stephen represented me in a complicated and sometimes bitter divorce with many unique challenges. At the end of the day he was able to produce a settlement that was fair to both parties but limited my alimony payments to only 3 years. He is smart, cuts to the chase, knows the court system in the Denver metropolitan area and can be trusted to get his clients the best possible settlement.
