2nd Judicial District / Denver County

Unlike all other judicial districts in Colorado the Second Judicial District is not a combined court. Denver is comprised of four constitutionally separate courts; County Court, District Court, Probate Court and Juvenile Court. Denver Courts are located in both the City and County Building and the Lindsey-Flanigan Courthouse. The Denver District Court (civil and domestic matters), County Court (traffic and civil matters) and Probate Court are all located in the City and County Building. Denver Criminal Courts; District, County and all Juvenile Court matters, are located in the Lindsey-Flanigan Courthouse.

District Court

The District Court handles the following types of cases: felony criminal, civil, and domestic relations; including dissolution of marriage and allocation of parental responsibilities. District Court also handles protection orders when issues arise between the parties in a dissolution of marriage (divorce) or allocation of parental responsibilities (custody) proceeding.


County Court

The Civil Division of the County Court handles the following types of cases: evictions, name changes, replevins and foreign judgments, protection orders, and money suits in which the claim does NOT exceed $25,000.00.

County Court also handles traffic violations and some criminal cases (municipal ordinance violations, petty offenses, and misdemeanors).

Probate Court

The Denver Probate Court handles the following types of cases: all matters of probate, settlements of estates of deceased persons, appointment of guardians, conservators and administrators, and settlement of their accounts, and the adjudication of the mentally ill.

Juvenile Court

The Denver Juvenile Court handles the following types of cases: paternity, adoptions, child support, grandparent visitation, expungements, dependency and neglect, truancy, and delinquency cases. Litigants may also file to have custody issues addressed in the Juvenile Court if there is a pre-existing child support or paternity case.
