Paying Maintenance While Unemployed in Colorado

I live in Colorado and have recently become unemployed. Do I need to pay maintenance to my ex-wife while I’m unemployed?

It depends on what kind of maintenance you are paying. If you are paying “contractual, non-modifiable maintenance”, you cannot modify the maintenance amount for any reason.

If you are not paying “contractual, non-modifiable maintenance”, you can modify your maintenance both in amount and duration.
