Spousal Maintenance

Maintenance may be awarded on a temporary and/or a permanent basis. Colorado statutes do not provide for alimony but do allow a court to award spousal maintenance in order to enable a spouse to meet his or her reasonable needs and expenses for day-to-day living. The court must make a number of factual findings in order to award maintenance, including that a spouse cannot afford those reasonable expenses without financial support from the other spouse. We can assist in making sure that any such award is appropriate for the financial circumstances of the marriage.
