Marriage License & Divorce Decree

Sometimes a certified copy of a marriage license can be used to help prove your identity. For example, a certified copy of a marriage certificate is one of the secondary forms of ID that the Vital Records Office will accept when applying for a birth certificate in Colorado.

A divorce decree can also be used to help prove your identity. For example, the Office of Vital Statistics will accept a copy of a divorce decree as a secondary form of ID when applying for a birth certificate.
