The Third Judicial District and Access to Justice Committee will offer “Divorce-in-a-Day” on Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2019, for people in both new and existing domestic relations cases.

The proceedings begin at 9 a.m. in the District Court courtroom on the third floor of the Las Animas County Courthouse (200 E. First Street, Trinidad, CO 81082).

The Court’s family court facilitator and self-represented litigant coordinators will be on hand to answer procedural questions and assist with completing forms for divorce, custody, and other family law matters. A judge will be available for hearings, if needed.

Throughout the day free parenting classes will be offered. Mediation services will be available, as will free legal consultations by local attorneys. Appointments are required for consultation with an attorney and/or mediation.

A 91-day statutory waiting period applies to all Dissolution of Marriage cases before a final decree may be entered.
