In Colorado Divorce law, it is the section of a national alimony reform movement, with many state legislatures asking to either limit or standardize spousal maintenance monitory returns.
The main thing is that, the focus has been on the absence of stability in maintenance judgments,
which resulted in conceptions of unfairness and the inability to guess results.
all of which have changed to the use of maintenance formulas, matching to those used to calculate infant support, to determine payments.
- After more than twenty four months of work, including an easy task force and legal training, Colorado has made a formula of its own.
- There is ambiguity; still it depends about how closely it will be followed by the court.
- The guidelines are only an advisory to the legal actions, an initial point to help in thinking how much, if any,
maintenance should be given, and also for required time period.
- The final decision still depends upon the court, which must recognize such facts as
each partner’s income, financial assets and requirements, and marital resources.
