My ex husband married someone else even though we are not legally divorced. What should I do?
I have just found out that the man I married in NY in 96 has married someone else and we are not divorced. I married this man twice, the first time in 75, by doing a search I have found many marriages and divorces, and this makes me question the validity of either of my marriages. Where do I go from here, I have spoken to his current wife and she says she will help me in any way she can, so I do know that he has committed bigamy at least once and there may be more.07/08/2007 | Category: Divorce » Remarriage | State: Georgia | #7001
The following is a GA statute:
§ 16-6-20. Bigamy
(a) A person commits the offense of bigamy when he, being married and knowing that his lawful spouse is living, marries another person or carries on a bigamous cohabitation with another person.
(b) It shall be an affirmative defense that the prior spouse has been continually absent for a period of seven years, during which time the accused did not know the prior spouse to be alive, or that the accused reasonably believed he was eligible to remarry.
(c) A person convicted of the offense of bigamy shall be punished by imprisonment for not less than one nor more than ten years.
