Important Note on Evictions
If you receive a “Summons and Complaint for Forcible Entry and Detainer,” it means your landlord has filed an action in court to evict you. Make sure you provide an “answer” (response) to the court by the date and time listed in the summons and/or appear in court at the date and time of your scheduled hearing. If you do not respond or appear in court by the date and time provided, you will lose the eviction case by “default.”
The Colorado Judicial Branch has information and forms on evictions from rental homes, mobile home parks, and unlawful evictions: https://www.courts.state.co.us/Forms/SubCategory.cfm?Category=Housing
You can visit a Court Self Help Center for assistance understanding and completing these forms: https://www.courts.state.co.us/Self_Help/center.cfm.
