Husband already married


Dear NeedHelp:

Greetings. I am sorry but I cannot help you on issues arising in Alabama. You will need to speak with an attorney where you live. Good luck.

I am from Alabama. You may or may not be able to help me but I don’t know where else to go. I have been married for two years and I have a son that will be two in August. The main reason my husband and I got married. Come to find out, he is married to someone else. I knew before we got married but he told me they got a divorce. I never seen divorce papers but I believed him. Well, they didn’t! Are we legally married? From information I have found, I don’t believe we are. We are having problems and I have asked for a divorce. I just need to know if we are really married or not. Please help me in any way possible! Thank you for your time!
