Marriage License Application Process

Marriage License Applications are held confidential under Colorado Law.

Couples may apply for and receive a Marriage or Civil Union License in Douglas County, Colorado at 301 Wilcox Street in Castle Rock, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. (excluding holidays).

When applying for a Marriage or Civil Union License the couple must first meet the general requirements and restrictions, listed below.

Provide Social Security Number (Required)

Per Colorado Revised Statute, the last four digits of a social security number is required on a marriage license application. The entire social security number is required for a Civil Union. If an applicant does not have a social security number, an affidavit provided by the Clerk’s Office must be signed stating that the party does not have a social security number.

Provide proof of Identity (Required)
Applicants must provide proof of identity and date of birth. All identity documents must be in English. Acceptable forms of ID include:

Marriage / Civil Union Fee (payable by cash or credit card only)
The fee of $30 is payable by cash or credit card only. Additional copies of the license (after recording) are $1.25 each. Shipping and handling charges may apply.

Prohibited Marriages / Civil Unions

Marriage or Civil Union between first Cousins is permitted in Colorado.

Applying for a Marriage or Civil Union License

The couple then applies for a Marriage or Civil Union by entering the applicant’s information into the Marriage or Civil Union online kiosk, which will significantly speed up the processing time when the parties appear in the Office of the Clerk and Recorder to obtain their license.

Please review the full list of requirements before beginning your application.
