The Marshall County Register of Deeds office can most appropriately be thought of as a library of local records. We record real estate records such as deeds, mortgages, satisfactions, leases, and plats along with many other types of documents.

Some documents that are filed in our office would include federal and state tax liens, mechanics liens, county poor liens, fictitious name, Military Discharges and UCC filings just to name a few.

Our office also issues marriages licenses and certified birth, death and marriage records. Please see below for an application form for one of those records. Burial permits are also filed here.

For document fees, please click on our Fee Brochure.

Marriage License Information:

  • A marriage license is $40 and we accept cash or check only, no credit cards.
  • Both parties must be present and show acceptable identification such as a passport or other government issued ID.
  • The license obtained from a South Dakota Register of Deeds Office is valid only in the State of South Dakota and will become void and of no effect unless the marriage is solemnized within 90 days from the purchase of your license. (You can purchase your license in one SD County and marry in another SD County.)
  • Individuals the age of 16 and 17 must have parental consent prior to issuance of the license.

If you have any questions please contact our office.
