What Are the Laws Dictating Modifications?

Colorado law requires a “substantial and continuing change” in the personal circumstances of either party to approve a modification of child support. Generally, the court orders a modification where there is a 10 percent increase or decrease in support obligations as the result of such changes such as a big raise, unemployment, an inheritance, medical expenses or educational expenses.
