If there's an error on your marriage certificate, you can apply to have it corrected.
Generally, you can only apply to correct your own marriage certificate.
Children can be eligible to correct the marriage certificate of their deceased parents. If you are applying to correct the marriage certificate of someone else, please see the BDM Access Policy to review entitlement.
