How To Access South Dakota Divorce Records
The South Dakota Department of Health, Office of Vital Records, is the main repository for statewide divorce record access. Both informational and certified copies of South Dakota divorce records are available. Certified divorce record copies are printed on security paper and have a raised seal.
The certified type of copy is for the individuals named on the certificate, members of their immediate families and authorized agencies or legal representatives. Certified copies are typically used for identification in obtaining government benefits. You may also need a certified copy of your dissolution of marriage document as legal proof of divorce if you apply for a future marriage certificate.
