Confused about spousal maintenance in Colorado? This article explains the must-know facts about spousal maintenance aka alimony when divorcing in Colorado.
Lying, cheating, deception – and the loss of trust that is a product of such things – are all too often the reasons underlying a divorce. Sometimes, the lies and deception don’t end when the marriage does. Even though the parties in a Colorado divorce proceeding are obligated to make full and complete disclosures of their assets and liabilities under oath, one spouse may attempt to hide and conceal marital property from the other spouse. This is an effort to fool the court into reducing support or maintenance awards or deprive the other spouse of property and assets to which he or she would otherwise be entitled.
You can be married in Colorado without having a ceremony, a reception, a ring, or a marriage license. The state of Colorado remains one of a handful of states that recognize the institution of “common law” marriage. But like other marriages, common law marriages don’t always work out. When that happens, does the couple simply break up as if they were dating or in a long-term relationship, or can they get a divorce, going through the same legal process and subject to the same laws and rules as other married couples?
The answer is that if you can in fact prove to a court that you are in a common law marriage, you can get a common law divorce.
