    If he was married, when they applied for the marriage liscense, and got married, then it was null and void to begin with, and a very big crime on his part. I would think that you could press charges, even sue him, and yes, you could get married, but start first I have to ask, how did you find out that he was actually still married to this lady when he and she got married?? A rumor, or do you have concrete proof?? He could go to jail for this.

    You would want a court order declaring the marriage void (an annulment) or a divorce before you remarry.

    we have concrete proof she found the court documents showing his divorce from the first wife was dismissed for failure to prosecute. so does she have to get an anullment. if we get married is she then committing bigamy?

    Please take what you have found to a judge, and get this done legally, do as knowitall said, he is very wise!

    You can proceed on your own, but most people find it easier to get help from a lawyer.
