Spousal Maintenance

Spousal Maintenance Awards in Colorado

In many marriages, one spouse may return to school or decide to put his or her career on hold so he or she can focus on raising a family. These choices may make it difficult for a spouse to become self-supporting after the divorce. Spousal maintenance (also known as alimony or spousal support) can be awarded to one spouse to help rehabilitate him or her after the divorce.

At The Moller Law Group, we work with clients throughout Colorado Springs and Teller County to arrange fair maintenance payments. The court considers numerous factors in maintenance payments, and we help make sure they understand the full story behind each factor. Protect yourself during maintenance matters. Contact our firm online or call 719-694-1284 to work with attorney Bill Moller.

Factors That Affect Spousal Maintenance Awards

When the court is making support awards, they consider a number of factors, including:

  • Length of the marriage
  • Difference in education levels
  • Income history
  • Earning potential

If both parties have the same income and similar education levels, spousal maintenance will likely not be awarded. However, if there is disparity in the incomes and it is a long-term marriage, you need an attorney experienced in Colorado spousal maintenance law to ensure that your assets are protected.

Modifications to Spousal Maintenance

When spousal maintenance is awarded, it is based on the income of each spouse at the time of the divorce. Over time, if either spouse loses his or her job or receives a promotion, spousal maintenance payments can be revisited. We represent clients in post-divorce modification matters.
