Most pleadings in divorce and child custody cases in Colorado are accessible to the public. While pleadings with sensitive financial information should not be available to the public, they sometimes are because of how they were filed or how the court’s clerk may have designated them. Beyond sensitive financial information pleadings in family law cases can contain private or embarrassing information you may not want available for public viewing.
By filing the proper motion with the Court access to your divorce or custody case can be limited to the parties, their attorneys, and the Court. The Order of Limitation will specify the nature of the limitation, the duration of the restriction, and the reason for the restriction.
