Colorado Child Support Keeps the Focus on the Best Interests of Your Children
Skilled Denver attorney dedicated to your children having a sound financial future
Parents must consider not only how divorce affects them, but also how it affects their children — both emotionally and financially. I, Chris McLane, am ready to help you obtain a fair and reasonable child support arrangement that allows you to raise your child in a safe and healthy environment.
I help parents:
- Understand child support guidelines
- Negotiate child support through mediation
- Litigate child support issues
- Enforce child support orders
- Modify child support orders
Child support guidelines
Colorado law establishes general child support guidelines. I can help you understand the basis and structure of these guidelines and how they apply to you. I can help you obtain support payments that best accommodate your financial circumstances and most appropriately provide for your child’s needs.
Child support settlements through mediation
Through the structured process of mediation, couples can put aside their differences and focus on the one objective where they tend to agree — their children’s well-being. Mediation presents a forum for creating fair child support plans that allow both parents to share in the financial obligations of raising their children. I am a skilled negotiator who can guide the process toward equitable solutions.
Litigation of child support
In some cases, litigation is necessary for your child to receive fair financial support from both parents. I am an attorney who methodically prepares for litigation to achieve the most equitable support arrangement for your child.
Enforcement of child support
If your spouse has fallen behind on child support payments, you may need assistance to collect the money that rightfully belongs to your child. I guide you through the process of enforcing your child support order.
Modification of child support
Financial problems may put you in a different financial situation than when you and your spouse divorced. However, you must continue to pay child support until the court modifies your order. I can help you expeditiously process a modification of your child support order so that you and your former spouse more equitably share in the expenses of raising your child.
