“Jeff represented my girls and I back in the late 90’s. He was moral and ethical, which made him even more great as a Family Law Attorney. My case was not an easy one nor did it end with just one court appearance. Every time the absent parent took me to court, Jeff prevailed. If you want quality representation with realistic and positive results. He is the person you should hire. God blessed us with him and I will be eternally grateful.” R.V. -Denver, CO

Child Support is Everyone’s Responsibility.

Child support does not always directly correlate with the terms of parenting time and parental responsibility (custody) agreements. In Colorado, child support is based on gross income before taxes and deductions and follows a guideline formula dictated by state laws and statutes. In addition, the child support requires parents to share costs for the following types of expenses based in proportion to their income: health care, day care, and agreed or ordered extra-curriculum activities.
