Alimony & Maintenance

By: Divorce Matters  04/13/2015
Keywords: Divorce Law

In Colorado, neither spouse has an automatic right to maintenance. The court may award maintenance only if it finds that the spouse seeking maintenance lacks sufficient property to meet their reasonable needs and, in addition, is either unable to support themselves through appropriate employment or should not be required to seek employment because of child care responsibilities. Each maintenance case is different. Therefore, it is extremely important to look at all factors that the court will consider in determining whether maintenance might be awarded in a particular case. There is no easy or predictable formula when it comes to maintenance.
