I am US citizen. Married in 1955 to a French national. Seperated

Customer Question

I am US citizen. Married in 1955 to a French national. Seperated in 1978 with Seperation Agreement, paying alimony and other monies.. In 1979 received a Dominican Republic mutual consent Divorce. .
My ex-wife moved to the USA. I remarried in 1980. In 1991 a new Seperation Agreement was legalized whereby I paid a lump sum with the old seperation agreement negated. It was also agreed no further contact allowed.
Received a call (on my answerphone,fortunately) whereby my ex-wife is returning to France so she can enjoy medical help under the French system, as she can not afford US medical care any longer.
She threw in the statement " by the way the Dominican divorce is not valid in France,so we are still married under French law" . Therefore my question of course is: What does this mean ? an dhow vaild is her statement?.
