Life-time alimony


I need an attorney who can get lifetime alimony for my permanent disability (a stroke). In a 26-year marriage to a physician. I found this on your site

“Alimony for Life
While some states have eliminated lifelong alimony, except in cases of elderly or disabled spouses, that is not the case in Colorado.

In marriages lasting longer than 20 years, a spouse can be awarded spousal maintenance for the rest of their life.”

Private answer

It is true that if the parties in a divorce were married more than 20 years, the court may award maintenance for either a term of years or for an indefinite term, in other words, the court can award lifetime maintenance. See C.R.S. § 14-10-114(3)(b)(II)(A). Your set of circumstances are uniquely difficult and may warrant such an award. If you set up a free case assessment with one or our experienced family law attorneys, they can more closely analyze your situation and give you a better idea of the likelihood of you receiving lifetime maintenance.
