Denver, CO asked in Family Law and Child Custody for Colorado

Q: In Colorado, can the JDF208 request for state pay for a professional be hidden from opposing party during e-filing?

If so, what document upload category in the e-file system would hide it from opposing party? I know it will be hidden from public view, but I don't want opposing party to see my financials.

A: There is no way to file a document without the name of the document being visible in the docket. Court filings are public records so there are no secret filings that only the court can see. You can request to seal a document, however because the actual application for state payment is not visible to the public anyway, you would not need to make that request.
