During a marriage or partner relationship, spouses becoming accustomed to a particular lifestyle, based upon their income. If that union is ended by a divorce or legal separation, each spouse still must meet regular expenses. Income flow can become a problem for one or both spouses following a divorce or separation. For this reason, the Colorado courts follow a specific formula that allocates money to an ex-spouse or partner, so they do not experience a drastic change in lifestyle due to lack of money. The alimony or maintenance money is to be paid for a period of time, which allows the ex-spouse to move on with their life without undue financial stress. This period of time also can be used to find new sources of income for when the maintenance/alimony period ends.
