License to marry without appearing in person (1) A county clerk and recorder may permit the parties to a prospective marriage to satisfy the requirement to appear before the county clerk and recorder by an interactive audiovisual communication technology or online functionality, for the following limited purposes: (a) To verify application information; (b) To present satisfactory proof that each party to the marriage will have attained the age of eighteen years at the time the marriage license becomes effective; (c) To present satisfactory proof that the marriage is not prohibited; or (d) To pay required fees. (2) A county clerk and recorder shall not permit the procedure described in subsection (1) of this section if either of the parties are under eighteen years of age, or if the parties are using interactive audiovisual technology and are unable to appear together. Nothing in this section changes any requirement that must be satisfied in the state of Colorado. (3) A county clerk and recorder who permits the parties to a prospective marriage to satisfy certain requirements without appearing in person and staff members who carry out duties on behalf of the county clerk and recorder pursuant to this section shall complete the training and curricula developed by the human trafficking council created in section 18-3-505 for persons who work in or who frequent places where human trafficking victims are likely to appear. The training and curricula must be completed prior to permitting parties to a prospective marriage to satisfy certain requirements without appearing in person pursuant to this section; except that if a county clerk and recorder permits the parties to a prospective marriage to satisfy certain requirements without appearing in person on and before June 18, 2021 , the training and curricula must be completed no later than thirty days after June 18, 2021 . A county clerk and recorder who permits the parties to a prospective marriage to satisfy certain requirements without appearing in person shall maintain records demonstrating compliance with this subsection (3) and shall display a notice of compliance with this subsection (3) in a place that is accessible to the public in the county clerk and recorder’s office and on its website. A county clerk and recorder and staff members who carry out duties of the county clerk and recorder shall complete the training and curricula requirements pursuant to this subsection at least once every year for as long as the county clerk and recorder permits the parties to a prospective marriage to satisfy certain requirements without appearing in person pursuant to this section. (4) REPEALED
