Legal Answers
1 Questions Answered
Q. What can I do if my husband married another woman while we are still legally married
A: It depends on what you want to accomplish.

If you want to get divorce, an attempt to get married to another woman would be persuasive evidence in establishing adultery. If you want to get the second marriage set aside, you could petition the chancery court for a declaratory judgment to declare the second marriage legally void.
