Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to helping you today.

Can you explain the facts and what question you have? There are posts that are placed on the website every minute or so and there's not enough information here to know what you're looking for.

My fiancée has been divorced for 3 years now. She was "vegas" married and filed for divorce a week later. We're planning on getting married this month in nj. Her father doesn't know. The certificate will be signed by the imam i.e religious person in front of both parents.Is there any way she can leave out her divorce in her application, and amend it after the ceremony with the city?

What would you think would be the best approach (besides honesty lol)
Expert:  Dwayne B. replied 1 month ago.

Actually, the best thing would have been to get the marriage annulled at the time.

Does the marriage certificate in NJ require information about the divorce or just the application for the marriage license?

I'm not sure, I wanted to see if you might know...
Expert:  Dwayne B. replied 1 month ago.

Normally you wouldn't put that on the marriage license, that is only put on the application for marriage license which is filed with the clerk of courts. The presiding official, your Imam based on what you have put above, doesn't see anything that has to do with the divorce. They only see and sign off on the marriage license and/or the marriage certificate.

Expert:  Dwayne B. replied 1 month ago.

What I'd recommend is to go and apply for the license and then see what they give you. I'm not aware of any marriage licenses/certificates that have any info about the divorce, regardless of the religion.
