Colorado Divorce Filing Fees Increase Again

first posted on: 6/20/2003

For a second time this year, filing fees for divorce or legal separation in Colorado have been increased!

In March, 2003, Governor Owens allowed Senate Bill 186 to go into effect without his signature, raising fees fifty per cent - by adding a so-called "stabilization fee" of forty five dollars to Colorado domestic relations (including divorce-related) cases. Effective July 1, 2003, the separate basic statutory fee is itself increased to one hundred thirty dollars.

New Initial Colorado Divorce Filing Fees

Accordingly, this new Colorado law will add another forty dollars ($40) to Colorado court initial filing fees in domestic relations (including divorce-related) cases.

As a result, Colorado couples filing their Petition for Dissolution (Divorce) together — with both parties signing a single pleading as “Co-Petitioners,” as our mediation clients generally do — will now pay a total of one hundred eighty four dollars ($184) in fees and taxes.


Couples filing a Petition for Legal Separation together will now pay a total of one hundred seventy nine dollars ($179) in fees and taxes.

New Modification Filing Fees

Divorced couples or never married parents seeking to modify their earlier Colorado Court orders (concerning any Colorado divorce related issues, including parenting plans or “child custody” matters, or child support or spousal maintenance agreements or prior orders) will continue to pay an additional seventy dollars ($70) in filing.

All new requests for Modification must be accompanied by a total filing fee of ninety dollars ($90) (a 450% increase in fees, from the $20 fee before these two 2003 changes in Colorado divorce law).
 

Also, see our “Spotlight” or other feature articles, where we discuss in detail other Colorado legal, procedural (including divorce law and family mediation) or parenting topics. Presently, we look in depth at:

An additional highly recommended resource for Colorado divorce law information is Colorado Springs, Colorado family lawyer Carl Graham's Colorado Divorce and Family Law Guide.

“Thanks for making it such ‘smooth sailing’ for my former wife and I — in the difficult time of our divorce. The Judge said he wished all [non-mediator] lawyers appearing before him could be as complete and thorough with their documents and drafting, as was the Agreement we mediated with your assistance!”
