Calculator to Determine Maintenance and Alimony in Colorado
Serving those in Northern Colorado, including Fort Collins, Loveland and Greeley Colorado
“On August 8, 2018, a new Colorado law went into effect, changing the calculation for child support and spousal alimony. These modifications have been put in place to address the recent tax law changes. Divorce agreements executed on or after January 1, 2019, alimony will no longer be tax deductible to the payor (who is thought to have a higher tax rate), and taxable to the payee (who is thought to have a lower tax rate). Instead, the spouse paying the alimony will also have to pay all of the taxes, in theory generating more tax revenue.”
This calculator is based on the new 2019 Colorado maintenance guideline. Many additional factors will be considered by the Court when determining if an award of maintenance is warranted. Be sure to read more about maintenance in Colorado.
