My wife and I got a legal marriage license and was married

My wife and I got a legal marriage license and was married by a justice of the peace in Virginia. A few years later we got a legal marriage license then was married by a JP in the state of Nevada. Years afterwards we got a divorce in the state of Florida but failed to mention the Nevada marriage, only the virgina marriage. Did we make a mistake? Is there any ramifications of not mentioining the nevada marriage? Is the divorce valid? If she wants to make a claim of not being divorced, does she have any claim?

My wife and I live in California. We both have US birth

My wife and I live in California. We both have US birth certificates and passports, and California drivers' licences. We have been married for 14 years. I noticed that on our marriage certificate, the first names (given names) of my parents (the groom's parents) do not match their names on my birth certificate. This is because they are foreign names (my parents are immigrants and their native language uses a different alphabet), and I transcribed the characters as best as I could, phonetically, unaware that they are different on my birth certificate.My mother's first name differs by 2 characters (an "i" rather than a "y"). My father's first name differs more, because I didn't know that his legal first name in the USA was not the name I entered when applying for a marriage license. I didn't know I was making any errors at the time, and the clerk did not check documentation for parent names, only the driver's licenses of the bride and groom. I did not have access to my birth certificate at the time. The family names are ***** ***** my name and my wife's name match our CA drivers licenses.Only the first (given) names of my parents are incorrect.Are we legally married? We certainly wish to be!

I was married in 1982 at a church. Apparently the church did. Or file the record of our marriage with the county . I am trying to get a copy of my marriage license but there is no record. I contacted the church by email and am awaiting their reply. I have never remarried and now I can't seem to get a copy of the marriage license to get survivor benefits. I paid taxes and was considered my husbands spouse and now I need to know how to rectify this. I even have pictures of my wedding. What do I do . Elisabeth Cone

I was married to a man that was in jail my jaw. I did meet

I was married to a man that was in jail for breaking my jaw. I did meet somebody else and we did get married, which I did commit bigamy. I did get caught, my case was dismissed but the condition for dismissal was for me to get a divorce which I did.. My question is, Is my marriage to my second husband valid??? I'm needing to go to the security office to change my name to my new married name, which I have been married now to my second husband for 10 years.. Cause if it's not valid we are needing to get remarried then. My attorney who did my divorce is no longer in business for me to call him and ask this question. I do live in the state of Texas. Thank you, ***** ***** you can help me
