Question by alahomoa: How can you prove no marriage occurred between two people?
I have this lady I know, and she's involved in some legal issues, and the court has repeatedly stated she was married to this other person, but she was not. They refuse to look into this themselves. Is there any way to force the court to investigate this or is there some document you can obtain proving that no marriage between two individuals ever occurred? Any help with this tricky question would be greatly appreciated as I am no lawyer myself. I saw something called "Certificate of No Public Marriage" but I'm not sure if this would do the trick?

Can't prove a negative. The other legal issues are too vague to offer an opinion on. Obviously a court can order her to present a valid copy of a marriage license and/or the court where it was registered.
