  • Please note: The Loveland and Estes Park locations also serve as Vehicle Licensing branch offices. Applying for a civil union or marriage license at these offices may mean longer wait times, especially on the 1st and last days of any month.
  • complete the marriage or civil union application before scheduling your appointment.
  • only the person(s) conducting business that have scheduled an appointment are allowed entry - any other visitors must wait away from the building.
  • marriage and civil union licenses must be used within 35 days of issuance.


  • documents for recording can be dropped off at 200 W Oak (payment by check or money order only in the exact amount).  If payment is not attached to the document, we will be unable to record the document(s) and they will be rejected.  The recorded document will be returned to you by mail.  You may drop off a completed marriage license/certificate for recording. After it is recorded, we will mail the marriage license/certificate back to the couple at the address they provided on their marriage application.


Our Recording Department is currently recording all documents delivered to us --- electronically, by mail, and by drop off.


Passport processing, notary services and the sale of park permits and pet licenses are not available at this time.


The very point of recording a document is to make them public for all time.  Please use caution when recording a document that contains information you consider to be of a sensitive nature, as the entire public will have access - online or otherwise - to all the contents of your recording.  Thank you for using caution before proceeding!
