Relationship Certificate - spelling error


My girlfriend is applying for the 820 visa next week (her WHV runs out end of next week) and as part of our application we've gotten a relationship certificate from the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages.

We only received the certificate yesterday and they've made a minor spelling error in my middle name (i'm the Sponsor). I've contacted the Registry and they said they can fix it but it may take some time (it took a couple weeks longer than they told us to expect to get the certificate in the first place).

Considering we're cutting it quite fine with the application dates... how vital do you think it is to get it changed before we lodge the application?

Thanks in advance!

I think the best would be to get maybe an email from the registry stating that the'll fix the error and attach that to the certificate and hand it in that way and as soona s you have the corrected version give a copy to IMMI
