Colorado Judicial Department launches pilot program for self-represented litigants to file documents electronically

Wednesday, April 24, 2019

DENVER – The Colorado Judicial Department recently launched a pilot program in Douglas and Larimer counties enabling self-represented litigants to file court documents electronically, commonly known as e-filing.

The e-file pilot program is open to those litigants without attorneys in dissolution of marriage, dissolution of a civil union, and custody cases. Approximately 75 percent of litigants in these case classes are self-represented. Since the pilot launch on April 15, 2019, more than 125 self-represented litigants have enrolled to e-file.

“As more and more people are representing themselves in court, it is incumbent on us to find more ways to provide them with the tools they need to do so effectively,” said Colorado Supreme Court Chief Justice Nathan B. Coats. “I am confident this pilot will prove to be successful and more locations will be brought online in short order.”

Only named parties to the case are eligible to e-file. Requests to waive fees cannot be made through the e-file system at this time. Thus, indigent parties will need to continue filing paper documents at the clerk’s office in the courthouse.
