#1

First, I need a little more information. Are you saying that your divorce from your first husband was not final when you married your second husband? Are you now divorced from your second husband?

My first husband told me that he had filed for divorce after we had been separated for 4 years. he was getting remarried. I too was in a relationship and wanted to marry. several months after talking to him I did marry and so did he. I am now married for the third time (LEGALLY)or so i hope[:D]Now the problem gets even more complicated. I am in the process of filing immigration papers for my current husband and have just discovered this bigamy problem. How do i fix this mess?
