Legal Answers
Q. Colorado can you petition for a jury trial in divorce
A: In Colorado, all divorce and custody cases are heard by judges. Colorado courts do not grant individuals the right to a jury for these types of cases.
Q. is it fair whenAjudge lets the opposing party2agree onAcontinuance,when the askingParty was not givenAsufficient notice?
A: A continuance can be granted by a Court for any number of reasons but usually it needs to be for good cause. The granting or denial of a request to continue a hearing is within the discretion of the Court.
Q. In Colorado .. a civil protection order dismissed "without prejudice " can it be motioned to change to "with prejudice"
A: In general no, once a civil protection order is dismissed "without prejudice", then the case is closed in the court system. Without prejudice means that the party who filed the civil protection order can refile it at a later time; however, it is worth noting that most courts would want to see new allegations in support of the petition for a civil protection order.
