The Small Claims Court handles only certain cases per §13-6-403, C.R.S. Some examples are claims to recover money or property, perform or set aside a contract, or comply with restrictive covenants. The claim amount cannot exceed $7,500.00. If the claim amount exceeds $7,500.00 you may waive the balance over $7,500.00. You are NOT allowed to divide the claim into two separate cases.
You cannot file more than two claims in the Denver Small Claims Court during a month and no more than 18 claims during a calendar year.
All cases are heard before a Magistrate or Judge, and Jury Trials are not allowed. Mediation/settlement assistance may be available on your scheduled court date.
