While the holidays can be a fun and exciting time, it can also be painful for those recently separated or preparing for a divorce. Whether you are staying together just through the holidays, knowing that your split will be happening soon, or you have already separated and your holidays look very different than they normally do, here are some tips to help.
After Wheat Ridge parents choose to split up, either through a divorce, legal separation, or a break-up, you likely have a court order regarding child support. Different than with alimony or spousal maintenance payment, remarriage will not likely change your child support situation. Whether you are the custodial parent receiving the child support payments or the non-custodial parent making the payments, the responsibility to your children remains the same. Unless the Jefferson County Court is presented with significant new information, the child support order will remain in effect until your children are adults, regardless of who else enters your life.
