Colorado State Judicial Branch Partners with File & Serve Xpress for Rollout of ICCES Filing System

The Colorado State Judicial Branch announced on Thursday, December 13, 2012, that it would partner with File & Serve Xpress, formerly known as LexisNexis File & Serve, in order to ensure a smooth transition to its new ICCES filing system.

The implementation of the ICCES filing system will be effective in all judicial districts in Colorado by June 3, 2013. It is set to begin in the Second Judicial District on January 7, 2013, and there is a staggered implementation schedule for the counties. It is fully operational, and is currently being used in the Fourteenth, Seventeenth, and Twentieth Judicial Districts.

File & ServeXpress will provide e-filing services to the judicial districts until ICCES is brought online. Pricing for e-filing with File & ServeXpress will remain the same as it was under LexisNexis and to e-file with ICCES.
