Record annulment

#1

Post by showseason »

A sister that just moved into our ward, had a marriage annulment in December, prior to moving here. I was working in MLS anyway so thought I would go there to report it. Well, it transfers me to LCR and looking under family where it shows her husband, there is no option to terminate marriage. I can edit the actual marriage info but not terminate. Am I missing something? In the wrong place to do this? Appreciate any help

In LCR under the Family tab, click on the pen icon to the right of Marriage. Near the bottom is a box marked Change Marriage Status, click and on the next page use the drop down menu option!

That's were I am going. As I said I have the option of updating the marriage info but no box marked Change Marriage Status shows.

You might want to carefully read what the record says. A clerk can nullify a marriage civilly, but only CHQ can nullify a sealing.

I'm not sure what a civilly divorced but still sealed sister's record would look like. IIRC, in the old systems I used to work with, the former spouse was listed as a "prior spouse" and a flag "sealed to prior spouse" was set.
