The family court will not direct the person to be arrested. In order for charges to be filed, the police must be notified and an investigation will ensue.
If you want to have the case investigated, you should report it to the police yourself.
oh ok do you know if immigration is going to find out about the bigamy if no report... there is any way that they could know. I ask this question because the person that committed bigamy is Lawful Permanent Resident.
Immigration will not know unless there is an arrest.
As far as I know, however, bigamy is not a deportable offense.
Let me rephrase, it is not mandatory deportation.
What do you mean, that is my other question do you want me to accept the previous answer and then go to the immigration problem>?
You should accept this question and then repost in the immigration law category.
