I want to know if the law can help me ask my mother in law…

Customer Question
Please I want to...

Please I want to know if the law can help me ask my mother in law to go back to africa

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Since she came, my marriage has been suffering in a level where my husband asked a girl in marriage while we are still married

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Texas

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Also I am suspecting that my husband got married to another girl in another state or in Utah because he keeps telling me that polygamy is acceptable in the USA
