Proof of Claim

There are two ways to file a Proof of Claim with the court: (1) submit your claim electronically using the Court’s the Electronic Proof of Claim (ePOC) application or (2) mail your claim to the Clerk's Office in Denver.

Please read all information below BEFORE filing your proof of claim. 

In ePOC, you will be prompted to fill out an online Proof of Claim form. You do not have to fill out a form before starting.

Attachments: While completing the proof of claim form, you will be asked if you wish to attach supporting documentation.  Multiple attachments are permitted and should show that the debt exists, a lien secures the debt, or both. Attachments MUST be saved in PDF format, MUST be smaller than 10mb in size, and MUST NOT contain document security. Attachments not meeting these criteria will be rejected by the application.

Certain personal information must be removed from all documents before submitting your proof of claim. You must redact: social security or taxpayer-identification numbers; dates of birth; names of minor children; and financial account numbers. This requirement applies to all documents, including attachments. The Court will not redact information after it is filed.

After you have completed and submitted this form, a verification message will indicate you have successfully filed a claim. If you have questions about the process, please call 720-904-7450.
