Online searchable database: Colorado marriages and divorces from 1975-1998
Since 2003, the Office of the State Registrar of Vital Statistics has operated a web site where the general public may access information on marriages and dissolutions of marriage. As the issue of identity theft has grown, concerns have been expressed regarding the potential for misuse of this information. As a result, these records are now treated confidential consistent with other vital records in this state.
