If the parents have joint custody will there be any child support ordered?

Joint custody is not a direct factor when determining child support in Colorado. Child support is based on a calculation which includes gross monthly income and other expenses of both parents. Another determining factor is how many overnight visitations a year will the child have with each parent.

If a parent doesn’t pay child support can the other parent refuse visitation of the non-paying parent?

No. Non-payment of Child Support is totally independent of a parent’s right to see his/her child/children.
