My question involves a marriage in the state of: California
My friend was just married with her husband for few months and found that her husband acutally is not divorced with the first wife yet. Her husband didn't tell her about the first marriage before they went to marry in Las Vegas and also got a marriage certificate from the county court after that. The husband's divorce with the first wife is still in process and not finalized yet, and don't know when it will be. My friend wants to leave her husband due to this situation. What should she do? If she goes to court process, will her husband face prison? She wants to leave him but doesn't want to put him in prison. Also, can she claim for half of the assets or any compensation? Appreciated for any help here. Thanks!
