This information provides a guide to the process and forms necessary to file/register a foreign decree in Colorado. DO NOT USE THESE INSTRUCTIONS, if you wish to register/modify/enforce your foreign support order (§14-5-601 - 615, C.R.S.) or seek to register/modify a foreign order regarding child-custody determination (§14-13-305, C.R.S.)
Once a foreign decree is registered and no objection is made by the other party, you have completed the first required step prior to filing any motions to modify or enforce the decrees, judgments, and orders of the other state. Prior to filing any motions, you may wish to seek the advice of an attorney as these matters can be complicated.
