Temporary Issuance of Remote Marriage Licenses due to the Presence of COVID-19
The El Paso County Clerk and Recorder’s Office will temporarily issue remote marriage licenses to couples. Pursuant to Article IV, Section 2 of the Colorado Constitution and the relevant portions of the Colorado Disaster Emergency Act, C.R.S. § 24-33.5-701, Governor Jared Polis issued an Executive Order that temporarily suspends certain requirements for the issuance of marriage licenses during the closure of clerk and recorder offices due to the presence of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Colorado.
Couples will be required to sign an affidavit and submit this to the El Paso County Clerk and Recorder’s Office in addition to the online marriage application, license fee and any other required supporting documentation. The license is valid immediately and may be used anywhere in the State of Colorado. You have until May 31, 2020 in which to use this license before it expires, which is thirty-five (35) days following the expiration of Executive Order D 2020 014, unless further amended by the Governor.
