Correction of vital error in marriage records.

In all marriages where a vital records error has been made, the parties to the marriage may file amended affidavits, forms, and data with the judge of probate. The fee for filing amended affidavits, forms, and data shall be the same as for an original filing. The amended affidavits, forms, and data shall state that they are amended and shall reference the date in which the original affidavits, forms, and data were filed. The judge of probate shall record the amended affidavits, forms, and data if agreed to by the parties and shall forward a one page decree of correction to the Office of Vital Statistics. If the parties cannot agree on the one page decree of correction, either party may file an action in circuit court to correct the error.

(Acts 1943, No. 337, p. 318; Act 2019-340, §1.)
