COVID-19 PROCEDURES

Project Safeguard continues to provide legal advocacy services during the COVID-19 crisis. We are practicing social distancing and following Denver’s stay-at-home order by operating by phone, email and video chat to continue to serve survivors in need of our services.

At this time, all courts continue to hear Protection Order cases. As of March 24, 2020, Denver is the only jurisdiction requiring filing by email rather than in-person. Please see details about Denver’s procedures below. We will continue to update this page as we learn more about procedures in other jurisdictions.

Courts are holding hearings on temporary and permanent protection orders remotely, typically by phone. For more information about your jurisdiction, please contact our legal advocates in that location.

The Chief Justice of the Colorado Supreme Court issued a directive regarding procedures for other types of cases last week. Each jurisdiction is issuing their own directives as well. All of these can be found at:
