I have found some further information on my question. I have been able to determine that in NC a bigamous marriage (which I had)is void from the beginning and does not need to be voided by the District Court. If my marriage were voidable for some other reason (underage, too drunk to consent [:)]) then the marriage would have to be voided by the court.
So, if the marriage was void from the beginning, the divorce would also be void. I am absolutely ecstatic that I can say I am not divorced - I was never married!
I have a Consent Order for Child Custody and Support that came after the divorce decree and is a separate document, so I don’t think I have anything to be concerned about regarding custody of my children.
If anyone has any knowledge on this, it would still be appreciated greatly.
