Magistrate Archives

I lost my divorce hearing in front of a Magistrate...now what?

When parties ask a Magistrate to make a decision to resolve the disputes they have in a divorce or child custody matter, there is almost one person who feels they lost. More likely, but parties often feel that they lost.  Resolving custody disputes by litigation takes the power away from the parents and places it into the hands of a Magistrate who doesn't know your children.  Despite this, sometimes litigation can't be avoided. 

What is The Difference Between a Magistrate and a Judge?

A Magistrate is a judicial officer who can resolve the limited types of disputes that are listed in the Colorado Rules for Magistrates. The most common function of Magistrates in family law cases in Colorado are Temporary Orders hearings in divorces, Allocation of Parental Responsibility proceedings and post-decree matters.
