I was married to a man that was in jail my jaw. I did meet
I was married to a man that was in jail for breaking my jaw. I did meet somebody else and we did get married, which I did commit bigamy. I did get caught, my case was dismissed but the condition for dismissal was for me to get a divorce which I did.. My question is, Is my marriage to my second husband valid??? I'm needing to go to the security office to change my name to my new married name, which I have been married now to my second husband for 10 years.. Cause if it's not valid we are needing to get remarried then. My attorney who did my divorce is no longer in business for me to call him and ask this question. I do live in the state of Texas. Thank you, ***** ***** you can help me

Family law, bigamy : Should I wait answer. : Yes to several
Family law, bigamyJA: OK. The Family Lawyer will need to help you with this.Customer: Should I wait for an answer.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Yes to several but have not retained any.JA: What advice did they give you?Customer: Different advice. One said I could not get benefits I wasn't the legal wife. Two said they couldn't take the case because they didn't work in the area. One said that because we had been together more than 20 yrs and he died in our house I could receive benefits. One didn't know and one said I could retain him for $5,000 and pay $500 an hour (which I can't afford) and we would need to contract an investigator to find out if he was divorced.JA: When we are ready I'll take you to the appropriate web page.Customer: Ok. Should I wait online or what.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I was unaware that this woman existed. He showed me a divorce decree for someone else and I can't find the paper. He put in the marriage application he was never married and one form from his military record that he showed me states he was divorced with no dependents. His full record that I got upon his death states he was married with no children.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now.

My 20 year old daughter got married to a 29 year old man in
HelloMy 20 year old daughter got married to a 29 year old man in October of 2015, they got married by an Islamic religious Imam who is certified by the state of California which can file for a marriage certificate through the county of riverside , this is necessary in our religion as courting without a chaperone is prohibited unless you have a marriage certificate; even though they are not consummating the marriage.They had their engagement party on January 2016, and was planning to have the marriage ceremony in JulyMy daughter started a petition for her husband with the Immigration services to change his status and got an interview by the end of March 2016; they went together and he got approved for a green card.within a week from the interview he changed and became demanding and verbally abusive to my daughter, he also showed disrespect to me and to my wife; red flags popped in front of us and we started questioning his intent to marry my daughter; if it's for gaining legal status in the US and is not for the love for my daughter.He continued his verbal abuse and hacked my daughter's Facebook and started posting derogatory information about my daughter to her friends, he also started making fake accounts of Instagram with my daughter profile and was following her contacts and bad mouthing my daughter on the posts.with all that we decided that she should file for annulment of the marriage based on fraud.in which he was served on May 23 and has 30 days to answer.my daughter also filed a temporary restraining order which he was served 4 days a go and the hearing is on June 16th.also my daughter has an appointment with a supervisor at the immigration office on June 10th to withdraw her sponsorship of him to obtain legal status based on marriage.now that all of this happening; I was contacted by members of his family and some prominent members of the community asking and begging us not to go with the annulment based on fraud because if granted; this will destroy his future and is possible to get deported.My question is:Is it possible to get an annulment for my daughter based on what happened without considering fraud, knowing that they didn't consummate the marriage and never lived together and in the eye of everyone around us they were engaged?Thank you

With my busy schedule never found the time to go. What can I do ? I don't want to be charged for bigamy. What can I do?
