I think it depends on the state as far as timeframes. But I would play squeaky wheel until you get an answer from the priest. Either keep calling or try to get a hold of the church receptionist or someone there. Or, go up in person and wait to talk to someone. Even go up there to get it and offer to take it up to the county clerk yourself. Sorry to hear you are going through this, but I’m a big believer in the squeaky wheel gets the grease theory.

Is there anyone else in your parish office who might be able to look into it, or prod the priest to turn it in? Like an administrative assistant, or another priest? I would consider going down to look into it, if I couldn’t reach the priest. Not sure if this would have any negative repercussions, but good luck!

Let us know what that church says when you call them! Sorry you’re going through this.

In the eyes of the Church, you are married.  Marriage is not formed by your contract.  It is formed by the mutual consent you express to each other at the marriage ceremony.  You consent to marry and thus you marry each other.  As for the State recognizing the marriage, that is a whole other thing.  Eventually it will be resolved, but I’d say temporarily its going to be a slight headache.  Just try to focus on what you can do and let God control the rest.  It’ll work out in the end.  Worrying doesn’t solve problem.

I hope it was turned in.  I’m pretty sure that they would consider the importance of this and do it as it should be.  Maybe the weather caused some hold-up?

I’m glad it was resolved!  I hope you don’t have problems with the tax return since it isn’t recorded yet.

Well, luckily taxes aren’t due… yet…. but it stinks to have to wait! Glad there was a resolution found and that it’s the states fault not the church, lol.
