In Colorado, family law legislation is sometimes introduced and passed late in the legislative session. Unfortunately, many of the last minute bills are ill-considered and appear to be driven by negative personal experience of a sponsoring legislator or a campaign contributor. Fortunately, in this session no such last minute legislation appeared in Colorado. There were some minor changes to last year’s maintenance legislation to correct some inconsistencies in the original bill. But there were no late surprise bills introduced and passed just before the legislative session ended.
