How Much Does It Cost to File for a Divorce in Colorado?
The cost of filing a petition for dissolution of marriage in Colorado is $230.00. The cost of filing a petition for allocation of parental rights (custody case when the parties are not married) is $225.00. It then costs $116.00 to file an answer to the petition. The petition must be personally served on the other party (unless waived), and that usually costs between $50.00 and $70.00. The parties also have the option of filing a co-petition, which avoids the cost of filing and answer and the cost of personal service.
