In Colorado, the award of alimony (called “maintenance”) during divorce proceedings is based on many factors. A husband and wife can resolve this issue using divorce lawyers to negotiate the many aspects of maintenance: the amount, the duration, whether and how the payments will be able to be modified in the future, to name a few.
The concept of alimony is to provide financial support for a spouse that is unable to afford to care for himself or herself. Some of the factors that are considered in determining the right to maintenance are the duration of the marriage, the couple’s standard of living during the marriage, and the property being awarded to each spouse. A judge may look at other factors as well.
