Divorce and determining spousal support

Spousal support is a common concern among Colorado couples who are going through the divorce process. In general, a court will consider the incomes of both partners and the couple's lifestyle. The judge may also consider other factors, including the length of the relationship, the age and health of both partners, whether there are minor children and what non-marital assets each person owns.

Factors that influence spousal support

In the state of Colorado, spousal support is typically mandated because the dissolution of a marriage can leave one spouse financially disadvantaged or even destitute. In light of the fact that spouses often unite their financial lives, it is difficult to determine exactly how much each party contributed to the family finances. Spousal support is supposed to at least partially redress the severe financial harm that can occur to one party during the dissolution of a marriage.

Who can receive spousal maintenance in a Colorado divorce?

Ending a marriage is not easy, even (or especially) if the decision was not yours. You might be feeling angry at your spouse and scared about what your future will look like. You can also feel overwhelmed by the prospect of supporting yourself, particularly if your spouse was the primary earner in your family.
