Description

These forms start a case for the Court to determine who is officially a parent.  These cases were sometimes called "paternity" cases.

 

Legal Advisory

These standard instructions are for informational purposes only and do not constitute legal advice about your case. If you choose to represent yourself, you are bound by the same rules and procedures as an attorney. 

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has developed a standard Report of Paternity/Parentage Determination (This is not a JDF form. Please click here this site to locate the Report of Paternity/Parentage Determination.)

We are in the process of translating many of our forms in Spanish. You may find that some Instructions and Forms, for example Adoption, Adult and Minor Name Change, etc., are not translated at this time. All forms must be completed in English pursuant to Colorado law, see §13-1-120, C.R.S.
