LEGAL ADVICE
sa DEAR DJ REGINA

QUESTION: Ms. Regina, My private question lang po ako nag baka sakali na mabigyan ng kasagutan. Kapag po ba ikinasal sa huwes at yung name sa NSO ay hindi pareho possible po ba na fake ang kasal at pwedeng ipawalang bisa ang kasal? (actually po two letters lang po ang hindi same.)

Possible po ba na pwede pang mag pkasal ang boy sa iba kasi nga po iba ang spelling ng name nya sa marriage contract doon sa record nya sa NSO. Pls hide my name nalng po. Thanks a lot. Happy New Year

Translation: Would it be possible that the civil wedding is fake or invalid if the legal name is spelled wrong? (only 2 letters are not the same.)

ANSWER From Atty. Chris Avelino:
**Typographical error on marriage contract does not invalidate or render the marriage without effect or voidable .****
