1. How can I nd out if I have a “IV-D” child support case in this state?
Contact the county where the case is located (see #2 for contact information).
2. How can I contact my child support agency?
The Colorado state website is located at: https://childsupport.state.co.us/siteuser/do/vfs/Frag?le=/cm:home.jsp
Colorado’s child support program is managed at the county level. Questions pertaining to child support should be
addressed to the county. Each county’s contact information is included at the end of this document.
3. If I am incarcerated, are there any barriers to having my order changed?
4. Do you provide any materials online that I can use to ask for a change to my child support
Yes, however if someone does not have online access to these forms, he/she should send a written request for
modication along with nancial information and the child support agency will send hard copies of the forms.
The “Review and Adjustment Request for Review” from, https://childsupport.state.co.us/siteuser/do/general/
promptReviewAndAdjustmentForm and the “Income and Expense Afdavit,” https://childsupport.state.co.us/siteuser/
do/vfs/Read?le=/cm:Forms/cm:Web_CSE102.pdf, are both available in the “Parent Section” of the Colorado
Child Support Website. Both can be obtained at https://childsupport.state.co.us/siteuser/do/vfs/Frag?le=/
5. Do you have any printed materials I could read to learn more about child support for
parents who are incarcerated?
6. When can I ask to have my order changed?
Colorado law (C.R.S. 26-13-121(b)) allows parents to request a review of their child support order every three
years. If the order is less than three years old, parents may still request a review if the requesting parent provides
justication that the change in his/her circumstances is “substantial and continuing”. The legal standard for allowing
a modication of an order is demonstrating a “substantial change in circumstances”, which is quantied as a 10%
variance in the child support order.
7. How do I request the change?
Parents must submit a request in writing to his/her child support caseworker. Once that is done, the child support
agency will take steps to gather the necessary information to move forward with the modication process.
This requires the parents to submit additional nancial and other information to determine if a modication of
the child support order is appropriate. These additional forms may also be submitted with the initial written
request for modication and can be obtained online at https://childsupport.state.co.us/siteuser/do/vfs/Frag?le=/
