Document Last Modified: 1/24/2020
These instructions, supplied by the Colorado Judicial Branch are for informational purposes only and warn the reader that they do not constitute legal advice in any way. When filing in court for an eviction, it's wise to consult with an attorney.
The instructions in this guide provided by Colorado are comprehensive and address some responsibilities in the eviction process for both the landlord and the tenant.
The six-page guide offers definitions to legal terms used in eviction and court procedures, detailed explanations for filling out the Forcible Entry & Detained Complaint form, and how the form may be filed with the County Clerk of Court and be served on a tenant.
The guide lists court fees (these fees are subject to change, so check with your county Clerk of Court) and it offers examples of potential outcomes in the eviction hearing.
Reviewing the instructions may be helpful to Colorado landlords who are using the Forcible Entry & Detained Complaint form. You may want to consult it as you gather documents that you will need during visits to the court, and as you prepare for court hearings.
