Recording

The Recording Division of the Clerk and Recorder's Office is responsible for recording public documents, issuing marriage licenses and civil union licenses, and processing new passport applications.

Recording and Legal Documents
The Recording Division is responsible for recording, indexing and preserving public documents, primarily real estate records, military discharges (DD-214) and any other information where there is a need for a public record. 

  • Record Documents: You can record legal documents Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the County Administration Building located at 5334 S. Prince Street Littleton, CO 80120.  
  • Search for Documents: Use our online Legal Document Search for documents dating back to Feb. 1, 1996. Visit our office at the County Administration Building to find public records dating back to 1902.
    • Divorce Records: The Recording Division does not provide divorce records. Instead, please find Divorce Records through Colorado Courts. 
  • Sign Up For Document Fraud Alerts: We offer a Legal Document Fraud Detection system, which will notify you by email at no cost whenever a legal document has been recorded in your name. This is a free, easy tool to help prevent identity theft and fraud. Sign up today.

Marriage and Civil Union Licenses
The Recording Division also issues marriage licenses and civil union licenses. We strongly encourage applicants to complete the online application before both applicants visit any one of our office locations in-person to sign and submit their application. See Wait Times at our office to plan your visit.

Passports
