Spousal Support Lawyers in Denver
Helping Clients in Colorado Obtain Fair Arrangements following a Divorce
When a couple decides that their marriage is broken and that divorce is the only reasonable solution, there are new issues to consider. For example, one spouse may need support to pay their bills, buy groceries, look for a job, and otherwise survive. While their lifestyle would not be identical to what they had before, one person could be providing funds to support the other until it is determined to no longer be necessary. At Kaplan Law L.L.C., our attorneys know the law and how to help clients build cases for fair spousal support, or maintenance, arrangements.
Often the disputes over spousal support are complex and without clear answers. How much should a spouse earn? Is income deferred or is there hidden income? What constitutes income? What about non-recurring income such as bonuses or stock options? How much is reasonable need for support, and to what extent is income to be shared in the future? For how long should one support the other? Is there an alternative such as an unequal property division? What will a judge do? Are the state guidelines really just guidelines, and how do you get around them?
These and similar questions often arise in a divorce or modification of a divorce, and the attorneys at Kaplan Law L.L.C. are very experienced in what to ask, how to find the answers, and how to persuade the other side and the court to do what is fair and equitable.
