The ins and outs of spousal maintenance in Colorado

In Colorado, alimony is referred to as "spousal maintenance" -- but what is spousal maintenance and how does it affect a divorcing couple? Spousal maintenance is a financial payment that one spouse makes to another spouse in the wake of a divorce to balance out the financial picture between the two ex-spouses. This doesn't mean things will be perfectly even, it is just a means to give some financial help to one of the spouses that is in need in the eyes of a judge.

Prepare yourself for child custody and support discussions

When it comes to divorce, anything involving your child is likely to become a complicated matter. No matter how amicable or understanding you and your spouse say you will be, a child is always going to bring out an emotional reaction in the parents. This doesn't mean that the discussions are unproductive -- but it is something to realize and learn from. Those who are discussing matters of child custody and child support need to remain civil and calm.
