Update: Eighth Judicial District’s Dispute Resolution Office Changes Mediation Cancellation Policy

Effective May 12, the state Office of Dispute Resolution for the Eighth Judicial District (Larimer County) changed its mediation cancellation policy to match that of the rest of Colorado.

The statewide policy for cancelling participation in mediation proceedings without penalty is seven days for both civil and domestic cases. Prior to May 12, Larimer County, however, operated under a three-day cancellation policy for domestic relations cases and a seven-day policy for civil cases. The policy conflicted with statewide practices, leading to confusion.

The penalty for failing to cancel a domestic mediation within the seven-day period is $120. The penalty for civil cases is $150.
