Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I will do whatever I can to answer your question.
Bigamy has no statute of limitations. Bigamy has to be prosecuted while the person is still married to two people. If the person is married to two people, it would be considered a continuing crime, and there would usually be no statute of limitations. However, if the person has remedied the situation with a divorce or an annulment, there could be no prosecution
Additionally, there has been no prosecution for bigamy in decades.
I hope this is helpful. If you have more follow up questions please let me know. It is never a problem.
Thank you.
