A: There is a general response form that the Courts have available online, see JDF 1315 (google "colorado jdf domestic forms"). You'll need to fill it out, file it with the court, and give a copy to your ex. Also see JDF 11031I- that is the instruction sheet on how to file a response.

I would suggest at a minimum consulting with an attorney who can walk you through the process if you are unsure of what to do or expect.

A: To respond to a motion to modify parenting time, you can use the Colorado Court forms (form number JDF 1315) found at https://www.courts.state.co.us/Forms/SubCategory.cfm?Category=Divorce. Be aware that you must file your response WITHIN 21 DAYS of the date you received your ex's motion, or you risk his request being granted without your response.

Reach out to a family law attorney for more information or help with filing the response.
