Can a child qualify as the stepchild of an invalid marriage?

332. Can a child qualify as the stepchild of an invalid marriage?

A child is considered the stepchild of the worker if the parent, or adopting parent, went through a marriage ceremony with the worker (who is not the child's parent or adopting parent). The marriage ceremony must have resulted in a marriage that would have been valid except for an impediment arising:

  1. From the lack of dissolution of a previous marriage or otherwise arising out of such a previous marriage or its dissolution; or

  2. From a defect in the procedure followed in connection with the purported marriage.
