Spousal Maintenance & Child Support

Navigating Spousal Maintenance and Child Support in Colorado

Spousal maintenance, often known as alimony, refers to financial support provided by one spouse to another following a divorce or legal separation. It’s intended to assist the recipient in maintaining a lifestyle comparable to what they experienced during the marriage. Child support, on the other hand, is financial assistance provided by one parent to the other for the care and upbringing of their children after a divorce or separation.
