It’s important to know what is required of you and your partner before you apply for a marriage license.
The marriage license laws in Colorado explain that you have to be of a certain age to get married. If both of you are over the age of 18, you have nothing to worry about. Just bring the proper identification and you can apply.
If you (or your partner) are between 16 and 17 years old, you have to have the approval of the juvenile court. The court system has to determine that getting married is in the underage party’s best interest. Marriage of individuals under 16 years old is prohibited in Colorado.
Neither applicant can get a legal marriage to someone if they are already married. You have to get a divorce in order to get married again.
If you are divorced, you will have to provide proof of the divorce including the when, the where, and the how. What day did you get your divorce? Which state did you get your divorce in? What type of court annulled your marriage? You should be able to find all of these things in your divorce decree.
If you are a widow, you will have to provide supporting documentation that proves when and where your previous spouse died before you can marry another person.
Lastly, you can not use an application from another state to get married in Colorado. However, you can use an application from any Colorado county if you return to that specific county to file the paperwork.
