Deb was hired to officiate our marriage on January 18th. She was kind prior to and during the ceremony, and she was on time to the event. However as a officiant, her job was to make the marriage official and she failed to do so. She neglected to thoroughly
read the licence and the ceremony address she wrote on the licence was incorrect and not in the county in which the licence was obtained. I found out a week later- when the court house called me- that the marriage is invalid. The lady who I spoke with at the
court house even said, "your officiant should have known to check this." The effects of this negligence are profound, because my husband (or so he should be) is leaving to go to the Army in two weeks, we need to rush to get married in a court house, not on
the date we wanted our anniversary to be, and it will effect getting social security documents with my new name in on time to bring with him to the Army to secure our health insurance. As I understand people make mistakes, I merely asked her to refund the
$200 we paid, as she didn't provide the service we hired her to perform. She refused to return the money. So I am letting everyone know to take caution if hiring Deb; for she lacks responsibility in reading documents before she signs them. And she is unjust
in refusing to refund money after incidences of malpractice.
