City of Longmont Forms - General
Colorado Municipal Courts
The Colorado Municipal Courts has created a list of self-help forms and instructions for matters that come specifically before the municipal courts. Below is a link to those forms and instructions.
Court Appointed Counsel
To apply for court appointed counsel, you need to fill out a Court Appointed Counsel Application and submit proof of income, or lack of income, for your household. Applications and supporting documents should be filed with the Longmont Municipal Court as soon as possible to ensure proper preparation and legal representation.
Failure to submit the required Court Appointed Counsel application and supporting documents in a complete and timely manner may result in the denial of court appointed counsel.
Sealing of Records - Expungement of Records
Any person in interest (party to the case) may petition the Court to seal records by filing a Petition to Seal Records in in which any arrest or criminal record is filed. To seal a record requires that either: 1. the terms of a deferred prosecution, deferred sentence, or conditional motion to dismiss have been successfully completed; 2. conviction was entered by the court for the charge of Minor in Possession of Alcohol and/or Marijuana and the defendant has not been arrested for, charged with, or convicted of any felony, misdemeanor, petty offense, or municipal ordinance violation during the period of one year following the date of conviction; 3. the case was dismissed by the prosecution; or 4. the defendant was found not guilty at trial. There is an administrative cost of $65 to seal records.
Under the Colorado Children’s Code, a person may request their juvenile record be expunged (sealed from public access) by filing a Petition for Expungement of Records in which any arrest or criminal record is filed.
