Helping People Secure The Alimony Arrangement They Need
Our spousal maintenance/alimony laws recently changed here in Colorado. The attorney you choose to work with could dramatically affect how the judge in your case decides on spousal maintenance.
How Do Changes To The Spousal Maintenance Laws Affect My Case?
The changes to the laws that govern spousal maintenance, which occurred in 2014, create greater uniformity in determination of spousal maintenance. For couples with a combined annual income below $250,000, a formula now exists that sets spousal maintenance. In the past, courts used various factors to determine if spousal maintenance was appropriate, how much should be awarded and how long it should go on for.
Currently, there is no formula for couples with combined income in excess of $250,000. This makes it essential for people in such situations to secure highly effective legal representation that can pursue the spousal maintenance arrangement they need.
A Creative Approach Can Help You
When determining spousal maintenance, we can create unique arrangements. For example, a spouse who would otherwise be entitled to spousal maintenance can forego it to secure an asset such as the family home in the division of property. Our attorneys can help you pursue your goals creatively and effectively.
