TexCrimLawyer, J.D. :

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.

TexCrimLawyer, J.D. :

If you want to have the case investigated, you should report it to the police yourself.

Customer:

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.

TexCrimLawyer, J.D. :

Immigration will not know unless there is an arrest.

TexCrimLawyer, J.D. :

As far as I know, however, bigamy is not a deportable offense.

Customer:

ok. Thanks

TexCrimLawyer, J.D. :

Let me rephrase, it is not mandatory deportation.

Customer:

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>?

TexCrimLawyer, J.D. :

You should accept this question and then repost in the immigration law category.

Customer:

OK. Thanks
