Either parent can request a review of the child support order. To modify an order, we use a “review and adjustment” process that begins with gathering information from both parents about income and expenses. Both parents will have the opportunity to provide input during the process, and we may ask either or both parents to come to our offices.
We will review the information provided to determine if there is good cause for modifying the order. If we decide it’s in the child or children’s best interest(s) to change the order, we will recalculate the monthly child support payment using the Colorado Child Support Guidelines.
Your current child support order will still be in effect while your request is being reviewed, and child support payments must continue to be made until a new order has been approved. To request a review, contact the technician who is handling your case.
