Colorado Divorce 2007 Filing Fees Increase

first posted on: 11/11/2007

New Initial Colorado Divorce Filing Fees

Colorado divorce filing fees laws changeAs of July 1, 2007, Colorado divorce laws have again raised filing fees in all Colorado divorce and family law cases.

Total filing fees (with taxes, so-called "stabilization fees" and court security fees) for pleadings that commence a new Colorado divorce or family law case are now:

Type of
Colorado Divorce | Family Law Case

Filing Fee ($)

Colorado divorce
(dissolution of marriage)
Colorado legal separation
or annulment (declaration of invalidity)
Colorado child custody
allocation of parental responsibilities

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 ninety four dollars ($194) in fees and taxes. Couples filing a Petition for Legal Separation together will now pay a total of one hundred eighty nine dollars ($189) in fees and taxes.

New Divorce & Family Law Modification Filing Fees

The new 2007 Colorado divorce laws also increase filing fees for motions to modify or change previous Colorado family law or divorce orders. Sometimes called "post-decree" or "after divorce" motions, these include requests of the court to modify child support, spousal maintenance, parenting time and allocation of parental responsibilities.

Colorado family law courts are now required by Colorado law to charge a ninety five dollar ($95.00) filing fee in these divorce or family law cases.

New Divorce Orders' Certification Fees

Ordinary copying fees remain fixed at 75 cents (75) per page ($1.50, if double-sided), but certification of any court document has been raised to fifteen dollars ($15.00).


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:
