On the subject of social security numbers, it doesn’t specifically state that you need the actual card. Getting a copy of marriage license in Colorado is as easy as simply providing the number. If by chance you don’t even have a social security number, all you need to do to get that copy of marriage license in CO is sign an affidavit.

 

 

As for a marriage by “proxy,” know that by “proxy” means that either party – or both parties – actually don’t even need to be present when filing for a marriage license and receiving a copy of marriage license in Colorado as long as either party, or both parties, authorize in writing that a representative for each act as a ‘proxy’ to file for the marriage license.

 

 

Reasons for this can be when one or more of the spouses are on military leave or are otherwise unable to physically be there for the filing of the marriage license.

 

 

On the subject of officiants, understand that by law all officiants – whether out of state or in state – must be registered as qualified to facilitate a marriage.

 

 

However, in the state of Colorado, a couple can actually solemnize their own marriage. That simply means conducting their own ceremony. So long as they have a registered officiant sign the marriage license, everything will be legal.

 

 

That’s How Marriage Licenses Work in Colorado

 

 

Those are the laws. Knowing what you need and what’s not allowed by law will make the process of obtaining that marriage license that much easier.
