Among the unique provisions in Colorado law, all children are covered by a health insurance mandate that forces the parent to provide private health insurance even if some services provided by Medicaid.
This cost is split by both parents. Child support in Colorado is pegged not only to the income of the parents, but also the measure of what families with comparative income spend on their children.
The child support obligation depends on the number of visitations the non-custodial parents are allowed as well as associated child care costs.
Colorado state authorities can withhold a number of state benefits for the non-payment of child support, denying the evading on custodial parent licenses, lottery winnings as well as reporting the delinquent debt to credit bureaus.
