    Child support in Colorado is based upon both parties incomes, expenses of the children (i.e. childcare and health insurance for example) and the number of overnights each parent has. If you believe you are paying too much, you need to gather all your documentation and then file a Motion to Modify Child Support. Modifications are retroactive back to the date of filing. Most forms to do this are available on the Court's website - www.courts.state.co.us. You can also hire an attorney in...

    I concur. Continuing in the litigation process and court system isn't necessarily in your best interests or your son's. At some point all litigation must come to an end.

    As my colleagues stated, you have a very involved and complicated fact pattern that likely has much more information that must be provided before an attorney can give you any advice on how to proceed. You should strongly consider speaking with an attorney regarding your case.

    Once your divorce is pending, there is a temporary injunction that goes into place that prohibits dissipation of marital assets. Selling or trading a vehicle would likely fall under this temporary injunction. You should speak with your husband and see if you can come to an agreement regarding obtaining a new vehicle that meets your needs. If you come to an agreement, you should put it in writing. If you and your husband can't agree, you might consider mediating the issue or raising the...

  6. Children that are born while mother is using drugs, do they get cps involved?

    This is a very unfortunate situation for you, your sister and the unborn child. I understand that she lost custody of her other two children and that you are taking care of them. However, it is unclear at what point she lost custody of those children. I would surmise that the children were already born when CPS took them into their care. Part of the issue here is you have an unborn child and a child who is not yet at a stage in development that the child could survive on its own outside...

    I agree with Mr. Smith, the wording is very important. However, what you don't want is to simply move out of state without doing it properly and then be forced back here opening the door for further litigation and a host of additional problems. When it comes to relocation matters, consulting with a highly skilled attorney in this area will prevent a pro se party from the many pitfalls that can occur. You need an attorney who can review your agreement with you, review the law with you and...
