The goal of our office is to provide as much public information to citizens as possible, including procedural aspects of our office. However:

  • Staff cannot provide legal advice. This includes assisting or advising what documents to record, completing the documents, or assessing the legality or correctness of a document.

  • Only persons licensed to practice law can give legal advice. If legal assistance is required, contact an attorney, legal adviser or review the Colorado Revised Statutes available at the library or at Colorado’s official state web portal.
