One major agency regulates domestic relations in the state of Colorado, the Colorado Department of Human Services. Regulations issued by this agency can be found in the Colorado Code of Regulations under different titles. For instance, Child Support Enforcement Rules can be found at 9 CCR 2504-1. Information regarding Child Welfare Services can be found at 12 CCR 2509-4. Although these regulations are codified under different titles, they all apply to the Department of Human Services.

The official version of the Colorado Code of Regulations is the one found on the Secretary of State’s website. Colorado State Regulations are also available on three password-protected sites: LexisWestlaw, & Bloomberg Law. Public patrons who visit our law library can access Westlaw and a version of Lexis called Lexis Academic. Ask a reference librarian if you need assistance navigating these resources.
