Filing Fees to Change Effective July 1, 2013, Due to Repeal of CJD 12-02

Chief Justice Directive 12-02 was created in January 2012 to temporarily reduce statutory filing fees. The Colorado State Judicial Branch announced that effective July 1, 2013, that Chief Justice Directive will be repealed, which means that filing fees will increase.

CJD 12-02 affected most civil actions, such as county court civil, small claims, district court civil, domestic relations, probate, juvenile, and water court actions. The fees reverted to the level they were at before CJD 12-02, which is a significant change. The fees for filing in the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals did not change.
