Divorces and how to enter new spouse...

Postby cboshdave » Mon Oct 09, 2017 5:06 pm

I have a situation where the husband is the member. His ex-wife is entered as his current spouse (she is not a member). The husband is getting active now and his current wife (not a member again) is close to baptism. I would like to update the record. I have all the relevant info. But when I click on edit, I can't change the spouse's name. I can only change marriage details like where and when.

What is the process for this? Sorry, if I missed this in training somewhere. I have never seen the situation though.

When you click the edit icon, it should show a button named 'Change Marital Status' (it's at the bottom of the marriage section--you may need to scroll). Click that button and select Divorce as the reason, enter the divorce date and save.
