    Determining Spousal Support Awards

    Stack of one hundred dollar bills and a note that says "alimony" tied together with a rubber band.Spousal support – also known as spousal maintenance or alimony – is money paid to the dependent spouse by the higher-earning one. The court will assess the higher-earning spouse’s ability to pay and the lesser-earning spouse’s needs when determining whether to award alimony.

    The court will consider factors such as:

    • The duration of the marriage
    • The marital standard of living
    • The education of both spouses
    • The age and health of each party

    How Long Can A Spouse Receive Alimony?

    If you do receive alimony from a spouse, the marriage must last for at least three years but less than 20 for post-separation families without children. The state of Colorado uses the following system to calculate the amount and duration of spousal support:

    • 3 years: 31% for 11 months
    • 5 years: 35% for 21 months
    • 10 years: 45% for 54 months
    • 15 years: 50% for 90 months
    • 20 years: 50% for 120 months

    If the marriage lasted longer than 20 years, the court will have the power to award spousal support for a specific number of years or indefinitely.
