Establishing Paternity & Support

Establishing Paternity

Paternity means fatherhood. When the parents are not married, it is important that paternity be legally established. Otherwise, the child has no legal father.

Establishing Support

Establishing a child support order is a legal process that results in an order that sets a monthly amount of money to be paid by the noncustodial parent for the support of the child.

Establishing Health Insurance Coverage

The Colorado Courts and Child Support Services Program also require that health insurance coverage be provided for children when setting up the child support order.
