Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.
If you want, you can file a case for a declaratory judgment stating that your marriage is valid. As part of the case, you can file a nunc pro tunc motion with regard to the license. This is basically a motion asking that the court accept the license retroactively.
However, if I were in your shoes, I would probably do nothing about the situation. I assume that nobody is claiming that you are single. So long as everybody is accepting your marriage as valid, I don't see an issue.
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.
I'm sorry to hear about your company's requirements. If I were you I would inform the company of the mistake. I would make it clear that you are indeed married, but that the license was apparently never filed, or was lost by the court. The bot***** *****ne is that there is no way you're going to get a court to make a ruling with regard to your marriage that quickly. It would be near impossible. Accordingly, I would ask the company for additional time due to your unique circumstances.
I wish that I could be of more help, but the timeframe is just too tight.
