My ex was confirmed to be the father of our child through paternity testing. His in the army reserve. What kind of benefits will my son be entitled to with his military benefit package? How will child support be calculated?
Divorce / Separation Lawyer
Your son is entitled to all of the benefits for any child of military parents. This includes health insurance as a dependent. Child support will be based upon the Colorado Child Support Guidelines, assuming that Colorado is the state with jurisdiction to make such decisions. If you are handling matters yourself, you can review C.R.S. 14-10-115 which is the child support statute. Better yet, consult with a family law attorney who can fully advise you of your rights. Good luck to you.
