Colorado Districts

The state of Colorado is divided into 22 judicial districts. District boundaries generally are aligned with county borders, however, most districts are comprised of multiple counties; only four counties are their own judicial district (Pueblo County, the 10th; Weld County, the 19th; Boulder County, the 20th; and Mesa County, the 21st district).

District judges serve six-year terms.[1]


District courts handle felony criminal matters, civil claims in any amount, juvenile matters (including adoption, dependency and neglect matters, juvenile delinquency, and paternity actions), probate, mental health, divorce proceedings and water cases. Denver is the only district in Colorado that has separate probate and juvenile courts.[2]
