Family Law Lawyer in Denver

Spousal support, also known as spousal maintenance in Colorado, is a court order that requires a spouse to pay the other a predetermined amount during the course of a divorce proceeding or after the completion of the divorce decree. If required to pay spousal support, the payment schedule could be monthly, weekly or quarterly depending on the specific circumstances of your case. There are a few different factors that will be taken into place to help determine the overall cost of the temporary or permanent maintenance, and an understanding family law attorney from M. Trent Trani & Associates, P.C. can help you understand this process.

When a judge is determining the overall amount of your spousal support payments, he or she will look at the length of your marriage, the annual income of both parties, the number of children affected, and any pre-existing court orders or spousal support payments for both parties. It is becoming less frequent to have long-term maintenance plans, but courts still frequently order temporary payments for lower-income spouses from their higher-earning partners. If either spouse finds the payment schedule or amount unfair, they can contest the ruling with the assistance of an attorney. With so many deciding factors involved in a spousal maintenance agreement, it is important that you retain the representation of an experienced family law attorney from our firm.
