Child Support Services

Child support is intended to provide for children’s basic needs and to allow the children to share in the standard of living of both parents. Child support can be addressed either by the Court or through the Child Support Services Division of the Colorado Department of Human Services. Within the Colorado State Court Administrator’s Office – Family Unit, a Child Support Services Coordinator acts as a liaison between the Judicial Branch and Child Support Services. 

If you pay or receive child support and do not have a caseworker, and you have questions about your specific court order, including making changes to your child support order, please contact the Self-Help Center at your courthouse. 

If you would like information on starting a child support case with the Child Support Services Division of the Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS), or information about calculating child support payments, enforcement remedies, and other help regarding child support, visit the Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) Child Support Services website

If you have questions about the Child Support Services program at the State Court Administrator's Office, please contact the Child Support Services Coordinator.
