Customer Question

I got married in 2014 to a man I thought was single. In 2015, he had his marriage to the other person annulled. Now, as in a week ago, she is claiming that they have a child. She sent the birth certificate with has his name on it. He claims that he knew about the child, which he never told the lawyer, but it wasn't his cause he left her at the end of 2008. The marriage certificate he showed the lawyer showed a year of 2008. The date of marriage certified on the birth certificate shows may 2009. What does this mean for my marriage to him and what are the possible ramifications?

Thank you for your follow up.

Was your husband legally married at the time that you go married to him?

Apparently yes

But then he got it annulled but the date she is showing and the date he showed are different.
Expert:  Alex J. Esq. replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for your follow up.

Generally, it is illegal to get married to another person, while the person is still legally married, so such marriage would be voidable and generally the best way to resolve the issue is to register the marriage again after the previous marriage was annulled or divorce was granted.

I wish you the best of luck!
