Hi Clare,
Thanks for your response, I was concerned when I didn't get response yesterday given that I was informed the expert was available at the time i contacted justask.
Our initial plan was to move back to Germany before this findings, moving back to Germany will require us obtaining a passport for my last child since my husband is German.
Apparently this divorce happened in Germany and our application will need to be tendered at German embassy in London
The single status on the marriage certificate could be questioned given that the divorce occurred in Germany.

Hi
Whilst it is an offence to lie in such circumstances it does not invalidate the marriage and neither is it likely that any action would be taken against your husband.
If you are certain that you wish to correct the order then you need to apply to the General Registrars Office
