Hi! I’m hoping someone can answer this for me… I know someone who was married and her husband’s age is incorrect on the marriage certificate. They are both looking to divorce so it would be really easy if this could actually nullify their marriage. Is she grasping for straws?…. Thanks!

I think she is. I would imagine that since he signed it and she signed it, it’s legal.

It doesn’t seem like that’s enough. The rules vary by state, but in CA, it’s actually fairly difficult to nullify a marriage. The law is generally in favor of marriage, and contract, so I seriously doubt this would undo the whole deal.

This is not enough to nullify a marriage. As PP noted, the court generally finds in favor of marriage and will view the marriage certificate (despite any incorrect details) as a representation of the couples’ original intent to marry.
Good luck to your friend.

If he was underage when he got married, and they made him "older" on the certificate, than yes, the marriage would be invalid. Otherwise, no dice.
