The Nineteenth Judicial District Clerk of Court is the custodian of records for the Weld County Courts. Most court File/S are public record and may be viewed by anyone, however if you are not a party to the case the court is required to review the requested documents and remove (redact) protected information. A $20.00/hour fee is assessed for this service.
There is no charge for viewing open cases unless redaction is required; however there is a minimum $5 fee if you do not have your case number. There may be additional fees of $20/hour if redaction is required. Access to some File/S is limited either by court order or by statute. Everyone requesting access to court records will be asked to show government issued picture identification.
The Weld County Combined Court’s file room is open from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., Monday through Friday. If you are not a party to the case and information must be removed or redacted, the File/S may not be immediately available to you.
If you do not have a specific case number available, you will need to complete a written request. You must provide the name, date of birth and types of cases you are interested in viewing.

Please include a Xerox notarized copy of your driver’s license along with your request.
