Everyone has rights, even drunk abusive husbands.

I don't know you- so take this in stride: since you are going through a divorce you need to stop thinking about him and start thinking about you. Find a support system of some type. You need to start your own http://healing.answers.com. Other people have been through what you are going through. You are not alone :)

His legal right remain. However, if you are talking about terminating his rights to the children, you have to apply that toward the settlement. Your attorney can tell you what the chances are of getting his rights toward them removed and what needs to be shown to make it happen.

It depends on the state you live in and whether the common law marriage was recognized under state law. If it was then he needs to get a divorce from his first wife and you are not legally married.

Yes. Divorce is legal in all 50 states. The only situation in which you could not legally divorce your husband is in the case of a married same-sex couple living in a state where same-sex marriage is not legal.

Yes, in fact the only way you can divorce your husband is while you are married to him.

You should notify the new "wife" that your husband is already married. His second marriage is not valid until you and he obtain a divorce.

If she is still married to her 1st husband then her second marriage to you is illegal and you are NOT married.

Because your husband did not divorce his first wife then you are not legally married. There is a Statute of Limitations in difference States and if you have been married for several years then most likely the marriage would be void. However, you need to sit down with your husband and tell him he because he did not get a legal divorce he needs to look into it and if he is does not then you are not staying with him the way things are.

If your marriage was legal in Mexico then you are legally married. You need to obtain a divorce or the Mexican marriage may come back to haunt you some day. If you remarried in the UK without obtaining a divorce that marriage would be invalid and would be exposed if your husband ever showed up.

If they are married to you then you consult with an attorney and file a complaint for divorce in the proper court for your jurisdiction. If they are not married to you then you cannot divorce them because there is no marriage between you that can be dissolved.If they are married to you then you consult with an attorney and file a complaint for divorce in the proper court for your jurisdiction.

The first marriage is legal. If there is a divorce then, the second marriage is legal. If there isn't a divorce, then it is not legal.

If you live in the US and your husband married you before his divorce was final, then your marriage is not legal. Go talk to an attorney and see what steps you can attempt to take to get it straightened out.

In Islam, you can not marry a pregnant woman unless she gives birth, this is if she was married to another man, then got divorce or her husband died, this marriage is then illegal, and any act that is done as a result is considered a sin.But if this pregnancy was due to an affair with the person who married her later on, this is considered a sin, for committing adultery, but as long as she married that same person, both are then recommended to ask for forgiveness.As for divorce, a Muslim can divorce his wife, when he sees he can't continue that marriage, regardless to the reasons, but he is recommended not to divorce his wife during her days of menses, though that divorce is legal, but the husband is then committing a prohibited act that needs asking for forgiveness.The question does not clarify if the wife was pregnant of the same husband that she married or from someone else.However,if the wife was pregnant of the same husband that she married, then both are sinful for having intercourse sex without marriage (called in Arabic Zena).if the wife is pregnant from someone else who is not the husband, then there are two possibilities:either the husband knew that she is pregnant from someone else, then the marriage is illegal and is not licit. The marriage should be after the woman giving birth, orthe husband does not know that she was pregnant then marriage happened with cheating and marriage built on cheating is again not licit and is illegal. Cheating is forbidden in Islam.In any case, divorce is allowed in Islam if both sides, husband and wife, feel that marriage continuation is no longer possible.

If you are unhappy in your marriage and there are no reasons for you to stay married to him - sure go ahead and divorce him.

If your marriage was not legal because your husband was still married (in which care your husband committed the crime of bigamy), then you can simply go back to using your maiden name (you can't get divorced as you were never legally married).

A marriage annulment is kind of like a divorce. but instead of not being married any more you basically like disown any children if you had any and you pretend that you never married your spouse (husband or wife).

If you have a marriage certificate, that is your proof. If someone is contesting this, it is up to them to produce divorce documents. Even if you were in the process of getting a divorce at the husband's time of death, if there was no divorce decree, there was not yet a divorce.

No. Your US marriage must be dissolved through a divorce decree.

In that case your marriage would be invalid. You are not married. Your wife must obtain a legal divorce to dissolve her first marriage. In the United States you cane only be married to one person at a time. If you are already married you cannot get married again until you get a divorce.In that case your marriage would be invalid.

no because divorce is only for the couple married

You already have a husband and just because you want another husband unless you divorce your first husband (at least in Western Countries) then you would be a bigamist which is against the law. File for your divorce; get the divorce and you are free to find another husband.
