What Is Spousal Support?

Spousal support—or spousal maintenance in Colorado—is an amount of money paid from one spouse to the other during the divorce process and after divorce, typically for a limited time. The courts award spousal maintenance to prevent one spouse from suffering a sudden drop in their accustomed standard of living. It’s typically awarded to spouses who earn significantly less than the other spouse or who haven’t participated in the workforce for some time because they’ve focused on raising children and caring for the home. If following the fair and equitable division of the marital assets, one spouse cannot maintain their standard of living due to insufficient income, the lower-earning spouse may seek spousal maintenance payments from the higher-earning spouse.

Spousal Support in Settlement Agreements

In most cases, an order for spousal support is temporary, an amount of monthly payments made until the lower-earning spouse has time to become self-sufficient. Divorcing spouses in Colorado may negotiate a settlement agreement between themselves and their lawyers that includes a monthly amount of spousal maintenance paid from one spouse to the other. If the paying spouse disputes the payment completely or the spouses cannot agree on an acceptable amount or duration of the support, they must take their arguments to court for a judge to decide.

This is especially true when it comes to spousal support.
