Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns. I am afraid that your current marriage is not legal. Any subsequent marriage is deemed 'void' if you are still married to someone else. Even if divorced, it does not automatically make the new marriage valid. As such you'd need to formally re-apply for a new license and get remarried (and hope that you are also not criminally charged with bigamy).Sincerely, ***** *****
