Deceased was still legally married when he died. He and wife had been separated but no legal action was taken to get a divorce. When he passed his son stated for the death certificate that he was divorced even though he knew that to be false. The death certificate was issued in California in 2013. Wife is trying to get the death certificate amended but has to get a court order establishing the marital status at time of death since son will not sign the affidavit to amend a record.
