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

Thursday, March 18, 2021

DENVER – The Colorado Judicial Department announced today that beginning April 1, a two-year-old pilot program allowing electronic filing of documents for people representing themselves in family court cases will expand to cover an additional 10 counties.

The e-filing 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.

The expansion will include self-represented litigants in the same types of cases, including existing cases, in Garfield, Pitkin and Rio Blanco counties in the 9th Judicial District; Chaffee, Custer, Fremont and Park counties in the 11th Judicial District; Adams and Broomfield counties in the 17th Judicial District; and Weld County in the 19th Judicial District.

The program is currently available in Arapahoe and Douglas counties in the 18th Judicial District; El Paso and Teller counties in the 4th Judicial District; Grand, Moffat and Routt counties in the 14th Judicial District; and Larimer County in the 8th Judicial District.

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; indigent parties will need to continue filing paper documents at the clerk’s office in the courthouse.

More information about e-filing for non-attorneys may be found at https://www.courts.state.co.us/Administration/Unit.cfm?Unit=efilenoaty.
