A: If you think that your spouse is attempting to marry in violation of the U.S. immigration laws you report your allegations with substantive evidence to the ICE and ERO.

A: If you and your husband are separated, then you should seek a divorce. If he wants to remarry, then he will have to file for divorce if he plans to petition his new wife.

If your husband gets married in another country, while married to you, then the question will be, can you get proof? Can you find out where and figure out a way to get the marriage certificate? You may present a certified copy of your marriage certificate to a foreign vital statistics office in an effort to get proof of bigamy.

Do you know whether he got divorced without telling you? That divorce order can be vacated if you never received proper notice of the case.

Bigamy, or marriage to more than one spouse, is a crime in most U.S. States and in many countries. Police will need proof that he has committed bigamy before they consider whether to take action.
