Calhoun, GA asked in Contracts and Family Law for Georgia

Q: Is a marriage legal if one of the spouses lied on the marriage license?

The details are the number of times the other spouse was married and the other spouse has the wrong last name on the licenses.

My daughter in law has been married three other times, when they filled out for the marriage licenses she didn’t use her legal last name of her third husband, she used her second Married last name and then only put down that she has been married only twice.

So I want to know if the marriage is legal.

A: What was it that the person lied about? We would need more information than this, as this is vague. The marriage may still be legal, but we’d need more details about what the lie was regarding. You could contact the county clerk to inquire about the legality of the license.
