husband and I have been married for six months, but I just found out that he is
still married to the woman I thought was his ex-wife. How do I go about divorcing him?
In most states you do not need a divorce because
your marriage to your “husband” was never legal. However, states may vary slightly in how this
issue would be handled. In some states
you may still need to seek an annulment, while others will consider the
marriage void, or that the marriage never existed, and will not require any
The first step you
should take in resolving your issue is to seek the advice of a divorce attorney
in your state. An attorney will be able
to advise you of what the laws are and what needs to be filed to dissolve your
marriage. If you need an annulment, you
will file a Petition for Annulment, and, if it is granted, it will be ordered
that a valid marriage never existed.
