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

Thursday, October 24, 2019

DENVER – The Colorado Judicial Department recently expanded a pilot program enabling self-represented litigants to file court documents electronically, commonly known as e-filing.

Since the e-file pilot program began in April in Douglas and Larimer counties, nearly 1,500 self-represented litigants have enrolled to e-file, and 149 new cases have been filed in the program. As of Oct. 1, 2019, the program was expanded to cover the 14th Judicial District (Grand, Moffat and Routt counties).

The e-file pilot program is open to litigants without attorneys in dissolution of marriage, dissolution of civil union and custody cases. Approximately 75 percent of litigants in such cases choose to represent themselves.

Only named parties to a 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.
