Colorado Marriage License: 3 Filing Tips

Getting married in Colorado and curious about how to file for a marriage license?  Our 3 tips will help you navigate the process with ease!


Tip 1: Plan Your Filing Date.  It’s great to be prepared when planning a wedding, but it’s not a good idea to be over prepared when it comes to filing for your marriage license.  Colorado marriage licenses expire 35 days from the date that they were issued, regardless of whether they were issued in Boulder County, Park County, Yuma County or any other county within the state.  Be sure to file for your license within the 35 day window to prevent your marriage from being “unofficial” due to an expired marriage license.


Tip 2: Hit the ATM.  All Colorado county clerks’ offices charge the same $30 fee to issue a marriage license, but several will only accept cash as payment.  A stop at the bank will ensure that you can file for your license, pay for it and have it issued the same day.  No need to waste time with two trips!


Tip 3: Double Up.  Both parties planning to tie the knot need to be present when filing for a marriage license in Colorado.  You will also need to supply your social security numbers and proof of ID, such as a driver’s license or U.S. Passport.  Head to the county clerk’s office together and you’ll be one step closer to marital bliss.
