Child support in Colorado is determined by a formula. It uses the parties’ incomes to calculate a base amount of support required for each parent and includes adjustments for health insurance, day care, and other agreed-upon expenses. The goal is for the parents to share the costs of raising the children in an equitable way.
Sometimes, the Court may order or parties may agree that a parent’s parenting time needs to be supervised to protect a child’s best interests. Supervision may take place with an agreed-upon person (such as a family member or friend) or with a professional supervisor.
Most people understand the term “guardian” in terms of a person who takes care of a minor child. That is one valid definition, but a guardian in legal terms is broader.
