Division 18 Case Management Orders:

Criminal Case Management Order

Pre-Decree Domestic Relations Case Management Order

Post-Decree Domestic Relations Case Managment Order


Domestic Cases

As required by rule, meaningful conferral between parties is required before a disputed motion may be filed with the Court.  An unreturned voicemail or email is not meaningful conferral.  If it is not evident from a motion filed with the Court that meaningful conferral occurred prior to the motion being filed, the motion will be denied for that reason.

A Notice to Set must be filed at least 10 days prior to the setting. Mediation must be scheduled prior to a setting on all matters whether they are pre or post decree. The only exception is in emergency matters, which must be deemed an emergency by the Court not by the parties. The clerk will not give dates for any court proceedings without prior notice absent a Court Order.

Domestic settings are held on Tuesdays at 8:15 am. Parties are to contact the division’s main line 719-452-5444 and leave a voicemail. The clerk will conference call both parties as soon as they are able. If parties fail to call the Court on the day of the setting, a new Notice to Set must be filed. Parties are only given the grace period of the of the setting to call, otherwise a DPO will issue.

If both parties are unrepresented: the Court Clerk will conference both parties, give dates, and file the notice of the hearing. If either fails to answer the phone, they forfeit the opportunity to choose the dates and times for hearings.

If only one party is represented: the attorney’s office should call the Court Clerk, the Court Clerk will conference the unrepresented party, give dates, and the attorney will file notice of hearings. If either party fails to answer the phone, they forfeit the opportunity to choose the dates and times for hearings.

If both parties are represented: both parties should contact the Court Clerk and leave a message. The Court Clerk will then conference both parties. The party that filed the Notice to Set will file the Notice of Hearings

ONLY ONE VOICEMAIL should be left with the Court. The Court Clerk will get back to the caller as soon as they are able.
