Pilot program allowing e-filing by self-represented litigants expands to two more judicial districts

Tuesday, May 25, 2021

DENVER – The Colorado Judicial Department announced today that beginning June 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 seven 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 the 21st Judicial District (Mesa County), and in the 12th Judicial District (Alamosa, Conejos, Costilla, Mineral, Rio Grande and Saguache counties)

Earlier this spring, the program expanded into the 9th, 11th, 17th and 19th judicial districts. It had previously been available in all or portions of the 4th, 8th, 14th and 18th judicial districts.

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.
