The Montana Vital Statistics Office at the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS) is the central government agency responsible for vital records in the state. These vital records are Divorce, Birth and Death, Marriage Records. However, the only information pertaining to Montana Marriage Records which is available at DPHHS is an index to marriages (and only for those after 1945).
Montana Marriage Records before 1945 may be retrieved at the individual County Offices where the marriage license was granted. The fees for these records vary from county to county but it’s usually around $10. Payments and applications should be respectively made and addressed to the local Clerk of District Court. Requesters must provide a copy of their photo identification, which could either be a driver’s license or two kinds of ID, with one displaying the signature of the bearer. An index of Montana marriages from 1889 to 1947 is also accessible over the Internet.
