If you or a witness requires a language interpreter to be present for hearings, you may request an interpreter online or contact the Clerk’s Office in Room 135 of the City and County Building by calling 720-865-7840.  You may also inform the clerk in the courtroom on the date of your appearance.  A language interpreter may only interpret what is said between parties during a hearing and immediately prior to or after the hearing.  A language interpreter may not provide legal advice or any other service that is not related to interpreting.  Interpreters may not provide any services that may constitute a violation of the language interpreter’s Code of Professional Responsibility   .


Mediation can be an effective way to resolve your dispute. In mediation, a neutral third party works with the parties in a confidential setting to help them negotiate a mutually acceptable agreement. You may choose mediation to resolve your case without going to trial. Private mediators can be found in the Yellow pages or may be available on the day of your court hearing. In many instances, mediation is required by the Court before proceeding to trial. You should bring any legal or financial documents and any other information relating to the dispute with you to the mediation.
