Compassion, talent and dedication: guiding colorado families and Their Trusted Advisors During Times of Need

Colorado’s courts remain open for many services

Everyone in Colorado and across the country is continuing to adjust to the new rhythms of life. Many individuals have shifted schedules based on these ever-changing priorities, shuffling responsibilities around in the name of public health.

But not all matters in life are pliable. Certain legal issues may need to be addressed in order to ensure the safety and well-being of loved ones. Believe it or not, there are still many ways to get these things done.

In-person hearings for emergency matters

Here in Colorado, the chief justice has put restrictions on certain court activities statewide. This order went into effect in March, and will continue into the summer – potentially longer, as the order may be extended as needed. The goal, the chief justice wrote, is to ensure everybody’s safety.

There are, however, emergency situations for which the courts will still allow in-person hearings. Each judicial district has provided specific details for what that means. For example, in-person hearings may still be allowed for requests such as:

  • The appointment of an emergency guardian
  • The appointment of a special conservator
  • An emergency mental health hearing

Other cases might be handled by phone

What about non-emergency court proceedings? In certain cases, these may be handled by phone. In addition, court officials have tweaked some rules to allow for occasional remote procedures. Some courts continue to accept filings via the mail or electronically as well.

While it may feel like much of the world has simply stopped, we know that is not the case for everyone. There are matters that need to be handled – some of them unpredictable and unfortunate. The courts recognize this.

Fortunately, in many cases, you will still be able to initiate the necessary legal proceedings. And at Chayet & Danzo, we will be here to help make it happen.
