If you are going through a divorce or legal separation, you may be entitled to spousal support or maintenance (a.k.a alimony). In Colorado, courts consider several factors, as well as a guideline formula, in determining an appropriate amount and duration that a spouse may receive maintenance. Some of the factors a court may consider are the standard of living during the marriage, the age and health of the parties, the needs of the spouse seeking maintenance, and the ability of the spouse obligated to pay maintenance to meet the needs of the spouse requesting support while also meeting his or her needs. Our attorneys are experienced in handling matters involving spousal support. Whether you are the spouse seeking maintenance or the spouse defending against a request for maintenance, our attorneys are prepared to answer your questions.
