Given the current pandemic involving COVID-19 most of Colorado’s Counties are focusing their resources and only handling emergency domestic hearings like protection orders and motions to restrict parenting time. They are still taking new case filing at this time, but action on them may be delayed. The Counties have vacated most family law hearings or switched them over to occur by telephone until either the middle of May 2020 or June 1, 2020, depending on the local county policy.
