A: You can contact the authorities in your county regarding his bigamy. You are not legally married. Therefore, you get a annulment, not a divorce. You may want to consult with an attorney regarding this matter. I'm quite sure the two of you have co-mingled matters. An attorney may be able to find your "husband." Even if your "husband" cannot be found, it will not prevent you from obtaining the annulment.
