A: The motion could potentially be dismissed. If you are the co-petitioner and the other side has not yet responded, or perhaps even if they have, you could file an amended motion with signature or a motion to amend the petition. Technically, a motion to modify decision-making should also come with an affidavit pursuant to CRS 14-10-132.

A: The court may possibility dismiss it without a signature. However, it is possible the original filed with the court has a signature even if your copy does not.
