Colorado Child Support Information

We regret to inform you that we are unable to work your case.

The state of Colorado passed a bill into law that took effect July 1, 2006 and can now be referred to as Colorado Revised Statute Title 12 Article 14.1. Because of the items contained in this statute a private child support agency cannot effectively pursue a parent for not paying their child support. Child support is lumped in with other bills such as medical bills, credit card and other civil matters that are pursued in a small claims court. A private child support agency is now required to follow the guidelines of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act which means that in the eyes of the law makers in Colorado your unpaid child support is no more important that an unpaid emergency room bill.

By capping fees and putting limitations on what a private agency and a custodial parent can or cannot agree to has forced us out of your state. It is unfortunate to say the least and now your only option to pursue your unpaid support is the state services provided through the Colorado Child Support Enforcement program, a private attorney or pursuing the other parent on your own.

THE STATE OF COLORADO TOOK AWAY THE RIGHTS OF ITS CITIZENS TO USE OTHER OPTIONS IN ORDER TO ENFORCE A CHILD SUPPORT ORDER EFFECTIVELY BASED ON THEIR POLICY.

37% of Colorado families do not receive their current child support. Only 7% of a total of $1,153,093,946.001 of arrearages owed in Colorado was collected by the CO CSE.

THE NUMBERS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES!

If you believe this is wrong and citizens' rights and opportunities should not be affected, write your state Senator or local Representative and request they review their policies.
