Under Colorado Revised Statutes (C.R.S.), interest can be calculated for child support arrearages. The following interest percentages can be calculated:
- Prior to June 30, 1975, 6% simple interest
- July 1, 1975, through June 30, 1979, 8% simple interest
- July 1, 1979, through June 30, 1986, 8% compounded interest
- July 1, 1986, through the present, 12% compounded interest
Effective 02/01/2004, the Child Support unit will no longer calculate or collect interest on past due child support. Any interest calculated and added by Child Support division, will continue to be collected until paid in full.
