it's a bit hard to help you when you do not say which line of your code throws the error, or what exactly your refer to as 'child field'... but i will take a wild guess that it's the seconf <cfajaxproxy> tag that errors: it looks like your form.S_Modell_ID is not always numeric, thus you need to enclose it in ' (single quotes) in the <cfajaxproxy> tag code, otherwise js will think you are refering to some js variabled called Cobra

<cfajaxproxy bind="javascript:SelectsecondDefault({S_Modell_ID}, '#Form.S_Modell_ID#')">
