Marriage licensing is conducted on an appointment-only basis.
No same day appointments are accepted. Plan ahead and schedule your marriage license appointment if you plan to get married within the next 35 days. Contact the clerk’s office at 970-384-3700, ext. 1950, in Glenwood Springs, or 970-625-0882 in Rifle.
Once an appointment is scheduled, both parties should come to the clerk’s office at 109 8th Street, Suite 200, (Glenwood Springs Courthouse), Glenwood Springs, or to the Rifle Annex at 195 West 14th Street, Building D, Rifle. If it is impossible for one party to be present, a notarized affidavit can be requested for the absent party.
Proof of age is required, which may be verified by a driver’s license, birth certificate, passport, or other acceptable identification.
If the applicant is under the age of 18, a court order allowing the marriage must be obtained prior to the issuance of the license.
