How Is Alimony Calculated in Colorado?
There is not a set approach for determining alimony in Colorado. There are alimony guidelines that attorneys and judges refer to when determining alimony but they are not binding on the Court. The Court will also look at a variety of factors that are codified in the statutes governing divorce and alimony in Colorado. Those factors include things like the ability of the parties to be self sufficient, the length of the marriage, and the lifestyle of the parties during marriage.
The parties can always agree on an amount and during for alimony. Short of that, the Court, if appropriate, will order and amount of alimony and a duration for payment, which is always subject to modification if there is a material change of circumstances in the case.
