There are no exceptions. If you “married” a person who was still legally married to someone else your marriage is void by law. Once the person you married has been divorced for a period of 6 months your marriage will be valid (day 181 is when your marriage legally starts)

That depends upon a number of factors: age, criminal history, type of charges, the stage of litigation, the amount of experience the attorney possesses, client goals, etc. Meet with 2 or 3 attorneys to discuss your case.
