In many cases, both spouses share their finances in a marriage. As you share finances with a partner over the years, it can become nearly impossible to untangle one person’s contributions to the marriage from the other’s. In some cases, one spouse may earn significantly less than the other or may not have worked secularly at all. Alimony is a way to make sure that no spouse suffers financially after separation.
In Colorado, alimony is most often referred to as spousal maintenance. Spousal maintenance can vary in the amount and length of time it is provided depending on your situation and how long you and your partner were married. But the goal remains the same. To aid in creating two financially stable households from what was once shared.
Divorce is a life altering process. It can be painful and complicated. Let our team at Hampton & Pigott help make sure that you get your fair share of spousal maintenance so that you can begin to move on.
