I Did Not Know About This Child Until Now. Why Do I Have To Pay Back Welfare?

Colorado`s statutes allow CSE Units and the custodial parent to establish support retroactively to the date of the birth of the child, or to the date of the separation of the parents, because the legislative intent is to ensure that every child receives financial support from both parents from the time it is born. If the custodial parent receives welfare, that part of the retroactive support will repay the welfare grants.
