Legal Question

Legally Married

I have been planning on getting a divorce from my husband of 9 years. I just found out that the pastor that married us did not send the license to the circuit clerk after the wedding. He gave it to me I just thought it was a copy for us to keep. I no longer have it because my husband got mad and burned the license. As far as I know that was the only copy of it we tried. I was wondering if I am legally married and if I still need to get the divorce. My husband still thinks we are but I am no longer sure. He tried to look up the pastor to see if it was valid but the pastor passed away 5 years ago.

Re: Legally Married

Check with the Circuit Clerk where you received the license. They canít give you legal advice, but they can give you whatever information they have. I would say 100-1, youíre married.
