A: Irrevocable trusts are required to be registered as are estates subject to probate. Revocable trusts and estates under the probate requirements are not required to be filed with the district court, probate court in Denver County.

The best way to find out is to go to ICCES ( and run a search. If that doesn't find anything you can go to the courthouse and discuss searching the records with the clerk.
