Maintenance Attorneys With A Creative Approach

In Colorado, judges have great discretion when it comes to awarding maintenance. They may award temporary maintenance, rehabilitative maintenance (designed to help one spouse get the skills needed to earn a living) or permanent maintenance.

If you have been the person primarily responsible for the home and the children while your spouse earned a living, you may need assistance getting back on your feet. You may have given up career and educational opportunities to focus on your family. Perhaps you have worked, but earned far less than your spouse. Our lawyers can help you achieve a maintenance award or divorce settlement that can help you move forward in your life.

Alimony Help For Primary Wage Earners

If you were the primary wage earner in your marriage, we can help you avoid the imposition of an unfair maintenance award. You may have earned a good living, but lost a job in the tough economy. You may have earned considerably more than your spouse, but the marriage was short. Whatever the circumstances are, our attorneys will assist you in protecting your hard-earned income.

Opting Out Of Maintenance/Alimony

In some cases, the spouses can opt out of maintenance altogether in favor of a particular property settlement. Since maintenance is taxable for the receiver and tax-deductible for the payer, it is important to carefully examine the effect of taxation, as well as other aspects of maintenance. Our Lakewood alimony attorneys have the experience and knowledge needed to help you make the right decisions about this subject.
