In re Marriage of Boettcher (Colorado 2018)

The highest amount of child support on the income schedule is not a maximum presumptive amount. If the parents’ combined income is more than accounted for on the schedule, support may be more based on an application of the statutory factors. The father in this case appealed a modified support order arguing that the highest amount of support was a ceiling. The Court of Appeals disagreed and found that support can be increased if appropriate. If the ordered support is less, then the process for deviating applies.
