Court Records Search

What are public records?

Public Records are gathered by various offices and agencies with the purpose of making those records.

What court records can I search?

You can search most cases in Colorado. In the district courts: domestic relations, civil, water, and criminal. In the county courts: traffic, traffic infraction, civil (to $10,000), small claims, and misdemeanors.

You cannot search any sealed case in Colorado. In the district courts: probate, mental health, juvenile adoption, juvenile delinquency, juvenile relinquishment, and general juvenile are not accessible. In the county courts, all sealed cases are not accessible.

Additionally, certain information such as street address information within each case is non-public. All parties to a case except the plaintiff and defendant (and in domestic relations cases, the petitioner and the respondent) are considered non-public. This includes judges, victims, police officers and jurors. Attorney names, however, are public.

Long narratives are excluded from the database, as are suppressed, sealed, or confidential filing. Financial information - such as fines - are summarized, not detailed.

What information is needed to conduct a court records search?

We've made searching our database easier than ever! Just enter the last name and either the full first name or partial first name.

What if I need more information than is contained in the result?

You can contact the individual court directly. Check the Judicial Branch listings for the appropriate district or county court phone numbers and addresses.

What if the information provided is inaccurate?

Government records can and do contain misinformation. If you find an inaccuracy, the Judicial Branch recommends that you write or call the applicable court.

How current is the information reported through

The information is virtually real-time. Therefore, when the change is made in the state system, it is reflected here.

What information is provided on a search?

CO Justice provides the Register of Action as reported in the State of Colorado Judicial ICON system. Information reported typically includes a number of basics on the case.

Status; Court; Case Number; Case Type; Case File Date; Case Close Date; Judge or Magistrate; Agency; Sentence Date; Parties to the Case; Charges; Disposition; Plea; Scheduled Events

What if I do not find what I am looking for on CO

CO Justice provides the Register of Action as reported in the State of Colorado Judicial ICON system. Information reported typically includes a number of basics on the case. A list of items often found on a Register of Action is listed above. The information contained in the system is provided on an "as is" basis. We can not provide refunds should you not find the case you are looking for, or if the case does not contain elements of information you are looking for. CO Justice does not report filings, minutes, and other details and documents -- only the basic summary of the case.

What does it mean when I get an internal error?

Internal errors on a CO Justice search can happen for a number of reasons. An internal error is typically an isolated problem with a particular search, sometimes a result of user input error, but most often due to an internet/server glitch.

If you receive an "internal error" or "timing out error" message on a search, please check your SEARCH HISTORY first located under My Profile. If the search does not appear in your SEARCH HISTORY, you were not charged for the search. Try to conduct the search again after waiting a minute or two. If you do receive consistent Internal Errors within a period of time, this may indicate a more consistent issue and we encourage you to contact the client relations department at (800) 200-0853 or send us an e-mail.
