Where Is Colorado’s Bankruptcy Court?
Bankruptcy is governed almost entirely by federal law, and bankruptcy cases are handled by federal courts. Federal District Courts differ in many ways from Colorado state courts, so calling the the bankruptcy court “Colorado’s Bankruptcy Court” is something of a misnomer. To be more accurate, Coloradans file bankruptcy in the United States District Court for the District of Colorado, which houses the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorado.
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorado is located in the U.S. Customs House, between California St. & Stout St. in downtown Denver. Parking is available in adjacent parking lots and garages.
If you live in Aurora, Arvada, Boulder, Centennial, Denver, Lakewood, Longmont, Thornton or Westminster, your 341 Hearing will probably be held in Denver.
If you live in Pueblo, Grand Junction, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins or nearby towns like Durango, Greeley or Loveland, you will probably have your 341 Hearing at a satellite location. That way, you don’t have to drive all the way to Denver to meet with the bankruptcy trustee. Click here for a list of approved locations on the United States Trustee’s website.
