Unless a Separation Agreement or court Order makes maintenance non-modifiable, both maintenance and child support can be modified upon demonstrating a substantial change of circumstances. Some common reasons for changes to maintenance include loss of employment, substantial increases in income or co-habitation of the supported spouse. Child support can be modified if there is a change to either parties’ income or parenting time share.
Moreover, as children grow their needs and schedules change; thus parenting plans should be revisited. An infant may not have many overnight visits with his father, whereas a seven year old may respond well to a 50/50 schedule, sharing time equally between parents. Career demands may alter the amount of time one parent can spend with a child and sometimes, unfortunately, one parent may try and alienate a child from the other. Colorado allows you to ask the courts to modify a parenting plan if doing so is in the best interests of the children.
