Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Hello! I am Erin and I am here to help answer your question, today. Are you referring to the portion of the Michigan marriage license application that asks about times previously married?
Ok, that's what I thought. And yes I was referring to the question where it asks for 'Times Married'.
The thought in my mind was that since the marriage and divorce happened in a foreign country and I said I was married before, would they ask me to file for divorce in the US to prove it, or is the documentation I already have sufficient, or will they simply not ask (Marriage/Divorce happened in 2010)?
This is the reasoning in my mind, and definitely not to hide or commit perjury or anything.
