If the date of marriage is incorrect on a divorce decree, is that divorce legal or are you still married?

If the date of marriage is wrong on a divorce decree, is that divorce legal or are you still married. My divorce was finalized 3 1/2 months ago. It was brought to my attention that our marriage date was wrong on our divorce decree. I was wondering if that voided our divorce or does that matter?

The divorce is valid.  The incorrect date of marriage is not a problem.  If you want to correct the date of marriage, you can file an amendment with the court. Ask the court clerk what the filing fee is for filing an amendment to a divorce decree.
