Colorado LLP Program Implementation Update with Maha Kamal | Episode 121

Divorce at Altitude Podcast

A lot has happened since our episode on the Limited License Paraprofessional’s program (LLP), a program that will authorize paraprofessionals to help solve simple divorce cases. So today, we are joined, once again, by Maha Kamal to update us on the program’s developments. As you may remember, Maha is the founding attorney of the Colorado Family Law Project and is known for offering sliding-scale and unbundled services to help a wide variety of diverse clients. 

Tuning in, you’ll hear about the current status of the proposal as well as the process of public comment in relation to it and what this entails. You’ll also learn about how you can submit your feedback on it, how it is likely to progress from here, and insight into the timeframe of when we can expect to see licensed LLPs in Colorado. Maha sheds light on some of the feedback she has received from lawyers, judges, magistrates, and the public. Listen in to hear more about the implementation of the LLP program and how you can help affect change.
