You have options. You can get divorced in the state you were married in (Nevada) or you can get divorced in any state in which you or your spouse has currently established residency.

It would be my suggestion to file for divorce in the state you currently live in because it would be much more convenient having the process local.

My husband thought he was divorced. We just got married and now he's filing for divorce in Las Vegas. We know our marriage is voided. Can he get in trouble?

He is not your husband. You can only be married to one person at a time in the United States. It is against the law to knowingly marry while still married to another person. That crime is called bigamy. It is difficult to erroneously "think" you are divorced when you have never received a judgment of divorce or participated in a divorce action. In Nevada a divorced person who applies for a marriage license must attest that the divorce is final, provide the date of the divorce and the location (city and state) where they were divorced. To provide false information is a violation of law. He must have lied on the marriage license application when he "married" you. He should make an appointment with an attorney to determine what he needs to do to rectify the situation. You should accept that he is legally married to his wife until he obtains a valid divorce.
