Hello,Thanks for using JustAnswer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do whatever I can to answer your questions! Don't Forget that the deposit you placed to ask this question is not used to compensate me until you rate my service ! Please Remember that when you are asked to give a rating, you are rating My Service and not this website itself or the law .
Would you please clarify the facts? What you mean the divorce decree does not match the date on the marriage license –
my marriage license date is october 23, and i really sat down and read the decree for divorce and i saw the error where it stated we were joined in marriage on october 21 on the divorce decree and it has been like maybe 39 years ago since the divorce and spouse is deceased
Okay – the marriage license and the divorce decree pertain to the same spouse?
An error in the date is what is known as a "Scribners error". It would not invalidate a divorce decree
A "Scribners error" is the legal name for a typographical error without consequence
Does this answer your question
you are soooooo right
You stated that I am "soooooo right" and then left me a poor service rating. Was this a mistake? I am happy to continue our conversation if I have not answered your question. A poor service rating puts my job at risk
