Once you have properly applied for and completed your marriage license and certificate upon getting married, you must return the completed marriage license and certificate for recording within 63 days of the marriage. Failure to return your marriage license for recording within 63 days of marriage will result in a $20 fee under Colorado law.
By recording your marriage license, you are providing legal evidence of the marriage to the County and State of Colorado.
You may mail or deliver the certificate to our Recording Division at 5334 S. Prince St., Littleton, CO, 80120, open Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. - 4 p.m.
If mailed, we will record the document and return it to you by mail within three (3) weeks. If delivered, we will record the document in front of you and return it to you at that time. There is no additional cost to record the license.
