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. Couples 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. For information contact Recording 719-520-6200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Other recording services are available while offices are closed. People who have documents to record may submit them by mail or drop box. The mailing address is PO Box 2007, Colorado Springs, CO 80901-2007. The drop box is outside the east entrance of the main office, 1675 W. Garden of the Gods Road. The documents should be in a sealed envelope and include contact information. Copy requests may be submitted via email at email@example.com.
