If he filed a marriage certificate with the women (not the OP) then the is a bigamist. While the marriage is technically illegal... it has created a bigamist situation because he has not yet divorced the OP.
He and is current (bigamist wife) will need to get an annulment or divorce to get himself back into a legal marriage standing of being married to only one women.
Technically, since the new 'wife' knows, or had reason to know, that he was not yet divorced she is also committing bigamy. She has committed a felony as well.
My father-in-law was in two bigamous marriages. The first was in the 1970’s. MIL found this out and got in touch with the other wife. The other woman was furious and got an annulment. He was not charged since the other wife just dumped his lying a$$.
Then he disappeared for a few decades. After I married my husband I started searching for him and found him… he was married to a woman and lived in Florida. They had been married for almost 25 years and have an adult daughter. My MIL was preparing a suit and legal case to have him brought up on bigamy charges. Then he died. I happened upon his obituary online. MIL has gone to probate court and is getting his assets. He was still married to MIL after all these years. He left her with 4 children to raise. The oldest was my husband who was 13 at the time. Because of this I’ve done a lot of reading up on bigamy laws.
OP’s husband is technically a bigamist right now. She could definitely call a DA in the state where he lives and ask to have him charged with a crime.
What on earth was he thinking to get married before his divorce went through?
