Colorado law protects the dependent spouse’s standard of living following a divorce. Maintenance, also known as alimony or spousal support, offers ongoing support to a former spouse following the dissolution of marriage or a legal separation. A court may award maintenance if a spouse lacks sufficient property to care for his or her reasonable needs and is unable to support him or herself through appropriate employment.
The court takes into consideration many factors such as age, financial resources, earning capacity of the party seeking maintenance, the duration of the marriage, the standard of living established during the marriage, and the other party’s ability to make the payments. Marital misconduct of either party is not a factor. A maintenance obligation expires upon the death or remarriage of the recipient spouse, unless ordered otherwise.

Mr Travis, Dauna & his team were exceptional! From the very beginning of my case they made me feel at ease, listened thoroughly and explained in detail to what possible avenues I had as options. I can honestly say I believe that the outcome of my legal peace of mind was directly related to that fact that I hired the right lawyer. In the court room, it was amazing to see how truly prepared he was. He knew my case inside and out.
I chose Rich Travis' Law Firm to represent me in a parenting-time case. Rich and his colleague Mitch were incredibly thorough, precise, and gave my case the specific attention that it required. Additionally, their paralegal Marissa Sterrett is incredibly sharp, organized, efficient, and has a keen eye for detail. Rich's staff gained my trust early in the process and took the very best care of my case to ensure a victory in the courtroom. My only mistake was not hiring Rich Travis' office at the very beginning of my divorce process, I would have had much better results early on in my case.
Richard Travis, his firm and the rest of his team are all consummate professionals, from the attorneys and paralegals to their receptionist. I hired Richard Travis at the nascent stages of my highly contested custody battle. My case lasted a grueling 8 years. But during my family’s dire need of a go-to legal team, and when I (we) needed this requirement the most, I was very assured and at ease to have Rich and the rest of his A-team at my side. I was able to sleep soundly at night knowing that Rich was there at my side in the courtroom.
Rich has taken care of two problems for us. An attempt to change visitation rights by our great-grandson's grandparent and now assisting with a granddaughter's divorce situation. In both cases, he kept us in the loop.
Mr. Travis is excellent with law facts, communication, completing legal matters in an expedient manner. He listens, is very intelligent, and is in tune with your needs. I have recommended him to many persons and will continue to do business with him in the future.
