Divorce During COVID 19.
Reduced hours. Courthouse procedures. Where to find the information you need.
The strain of shelter-in-place orders has taken its toll on many fragile relationships. If you find yourself facing divorce during these strange and difficult times, you need guidance on how to proceed. Colorado courthouses have re-opened, but many are operating at reduced capacity. This means shorter hours, fewer clerks in the building and modified procedures that seem to change weekly.
Navigating the court system was difficult enough before. COVID 19 has made it more challenging than ever.
It may seem daunting to figure out how to move forward with your case, yet the waiting can feel unbearable. Here's how to find the information you need to take the next step toward divorce.

If your county is allowing e-filing, use it. If not, you'll need to mail your pleadings to the clerk with the appropriate filing fee or visit the courthouse in person to file your case.
