The Montana Marriage Application is available here or in the District Court office. Completed applications must be returned to the District Court office for the Marriage License to be issued. District Court is unable to issue Marriage Licenses after 4:00 pm or on Wednesdays.
District Court is an Acceptance Facility, meaning we are responsible for processing passport applications. The application is available online at Travel.State.Gov or can be printed here.

Bring your completed application, an original document as evidence of U.S. citizenship, photo identification, and a photocopy of that identification to the District Court office to complete the application process. We are unable to process applications after 4:00 pm or on Wednesdays.

The jury pool for Anaconda-Deer Lodge County is selected annually from the listing of registered voters in A-DLC. Residents are notified when they have been selected for the jury pool, and are included in this pool for twelve months. If selected from the jury pool for a case, a resident will be notified via mail sent to their local place of residence. This letter will provide details regarding the date and time at which the resident must appear and further instructions.
Anaconda-Deer Lodge County Decision Records are available for the public to review in the District Court office via our Counter Machine. Visit our office on the second floor of the Court House during regular business hours.
