Bill Summary

The Colorado supreme court approved the licensure of legal paraprofessionals (LLPs), which allows LLPs to represent clients and perform certain types of legal services related to domestic relations matters, including:

  • Legal separations, declarations of invalidity of marriage, or dissolutions of marriage or a civil union;
  • Initial allocations or modifications of an allocation of parental responsibility, including parentage determinations;
  • Matters involving establishment or modification of child support or maintenance;
  • Seeking, modifying, or terminating a civil protection order;
  • Matters involving a name change; and
  • Matters involving a request for an amended birth certificate to change the sex designation of an adult.

The bill amends the relevant statutory provisions to align with the Colorado supreme court rule authorizing the licensure of LLPs.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
