Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'm an attorney. I’ll be happy to help you in any way I can. This site is for educational purposes only. Experts on this site receive credit for assisting you when you click the rating (the stars) so please submit a rating prior to logging off. You aren't charged anything extra by submitting a rating.A marriage in which one of the parties was already married at the time it occurred is, on its face, void. You may of course get married again, now that his divorce is finalized, but the first time the two of you "married" it would not be valid. I hope that helps, even though it's not necessarily the positive news you were looking for. Please let me know if you have any questions or you need me to clarify anything.
