Fort Worth, TX asked in Arbitration / Mediation Law, Divorce and Family Law for Colorado

Q: lived in Co 5/01-5/17 served divorce ppra 6/1/17. Moved to TX 7/17 for job Spouse atty sez I must trvl to CO for depo?

I’m willing to do deposition, just cannot afford to travel to CO from TX. I’m broke. Can petitioner’s atty force me to travel for. TX to CO at my own expense? I my view (and my CO atty’s View) the petitioner is attempting to make this process as difficult (expensive) as possible for me. If I was a resident of CO when served with divorce papers, how does my new residency in TX impact this puzzle? Again, I will gladly sit for deposition of petitioner’s counsel comes to TX. For me to travel to Co would cost me (air, hotel, car, food) easily cost me 3-4% of my annual gross salary. I’m a public school teacher and my spouse is well vested with high 6 to mid 7 financial family resources.
