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.

Domestic settings are held Mondays at 8:30 am, parties are to contact the division’s main line 719-452-5177 and leave one voicemail. The Clerk will conference call both sides once all voicemails are received.

A notice to set must be filed at least 7 days prior to the setting date. 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 a prior notice absent a court order.

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 day of setting to call, otherwise a DPO will be issued by the Court. ONLY ONE VOICEMAIL should be left with the Court, due to the high volume of calls the filing party is not to call the Court Clerk multiple times. Call once and leave one voicemail. The Court Clerk will get back to the caller as soon as they are able.
