In this post, we’ll go over 10 things you need to know if you’ve been served process in Colorado.

Understand What Being Served Means

If you have been served process, it usually means that someone (a person or entity) has filed a legal case against you. Sometimes being served means your presence is being requested in court or that you are being asked to provide some sort of evidence for a court case in which you are not a named litigant.

Inspect the paperwork received during the service carefully to find out exactly why you’re being served. Continue reading

Protocols on Serving Process During the Holidays

Every year around the holidays we get the same question at least a few times: Can process be served on Christmas or New Year’s Day? The answer is that it depends on where you are. While some states have strict regulations on days that process may not be served, Colorado is not one of them.

Colorado Does Not Limit When Process May Be Served

Contrary to popular belief, Colorado law does not prohibit the service of process on holidays. This detail is often overlooked, leading to a common misconception that legal documents cannot be served during these periods. While it’s true that some states have specific laws regarding process service on holidays and Sundays – with Minnesota being the only state in the U.S. explicitly prohibiting service on holidays – Colorado does not fall under this category.
