Most cases in our court are payable citations that don’t require an appearance if you pay prior to your scheduled court date and time.  Other cases, you may have appeared in court and are only needing to provide proof of completion of a court order by a certain review date and time.  For the concern and safety of all, if your case allows you the ability to transact court business without appearing in person, that is strongly encouraged at this time.  If you choose to appear in court or it has been ordered “mandatory” for you to appear, please review our Court Entry Rules and read the rules that must be followed upon entering the courthouse.  All individuals who appear for court must follow these rules.  These rules will be strictly enforced.  To maximize public safety and minimize traffic in the court building, please do not appear at the court earlier than your scheduled time.

If you received in the mail a “guilty plea by mail” form and “advisement of rights form”, you can still mail in or place in the drop box located outside on the wall to the left of the vestibule doors of City Hall the plea by mail form signed and dated along with a check or money order for court staff to process as long as it’s received before the due date listed on your paperwork.

The following payment methods are available if you have received a citation with a payable plea bargain already on it or you have previously come to court and a fine was ordered as long as you are paying prior to your scheduled court date and time:

  • Pay by credit card online at: or call us at 303-384-8006 during our business hours to process your payment over the phone.  (Please note, it may take up to 7 business days from the date of issuance of your citation for it to be available to be paid online or over the phone).
  • You may also mail in a check or money order to: Golden Municipal Court, 911 10th Street, Golden, CO 80401 or place it in our bill pay drop box which is located outside on the wall to the left of the vestibule doors of City Hall.

If you have been to court, been sentenced and had court ordered sentencing requirements to complete you may provide proof of completion by mailing it to the Golden Municipal Court, 911 10th Street, Golden, CO 80401, faxing to 303-384-8055, or by placing the documentation in an envelope addressed to the Golden Municipal Court and placing it in the bill pay drop box outside to the left of the City Hall vestibule doors prior to your court due date and time.  This will potentially eliminate your need to actually appear in person.  Please call the court at 303-384-8006 during our business hours if you are uncertain of what’s required or have any questions.

Please note: It is your responsibility to ensure the court receives payment and/or any necessary proof of completion paperwork (class certificates, community service log sheets, etc.) PRIOR to your court date. Failure to do so may result in a bench warrant for your arrest, a default judgment or an outstanding judgment warrant entered against your driver’s license.
