For a second marriage to be legal, the first would have to have been dissolved via legal divorce. If the first marriage was not legally dissolved, then a second marriage would neither be legal or illegal; it would simply be redundant. Married couples often renew their wedding vows, but there is no legal connection.

Is unlawfull to remarry same person without a divorce?

It is not unlawful but it would be of no effect. You can arrange a "ceremony" where you reaffirm your marriage vows but it wouldn't be an official marriage. You would not be issued a marriage license if you applied for one because you would have to disclose to the issuing authority that you are already married. Marriage is a civil legal status. Once you're married you are legally married. You can't do it again legally unless you divorce in between marriages.It is not unlawful but it would be of no effect.

Can you get married again if your first marriage wasn't legal?

It would guessed that due to the first marrage being not legal or not authroised offically, that being married 'again' would be perfectly legal, other than any personal issues that may be involved. However if the first marrage was illegal, depending on your location and current government stance- than it probably doesn't count as offical either. In this case than a 'second' marriage would be assumed to be perfectly legal.

If you lie on your marriage license is it a legal marriage?

It will depend on what the lie was about. If the truth would have resulted in no license being issued, it would not be a legal marriage.

If the marriage was legal in every other way then the answer is yes. However, it would help to know your wife's current age and how long you have been married.

If you have questions about the validity of your marriage you should consult with an attorney who specializes in family law.


Are you married if you got the marriage license but never signed and filed it with the state?

No. Not legally. If the couple received a valid license to be married and did so, they are legally married. The license would have had to be signed at the time it was received at the clerk's office, and would only have been issued if the proper indentification and requirements were met. The married couple is not required to file their own proof of marriage. The legal validation of the union is finalized by the judge, minister or whomever performs the ceremony issuing of the marriage certificate. A marriage license is NOT acceptable proof of a legal marriage.

If you get married before your divorce is final are you still married?

You would not be legally married, in that your (second) marriage would not be recognized as valid. In the US, you cannot legally be married to more than one person at a time. You would have had to lie on the application for a marriage license where it asked if you were single. Doing so could subject you to charges of perjury.If you are getting a divorce, it's not legal for you to get married again until the divorce decree has been issued and any waiting period has expired. In cases where an inadvertant error was made, the divorcing person would normally not be prosecuted, but the marriage would need to be performed again under legal circumstances.In some states you would need to remarry. In some states you could go before a judge for a waiver that would confirm your marriage if it was performed in good faith although during the NISI period. This is a serious issue and you should seek the advice of an attorney in your area who can review the situation and explain your options in your jurisdiction.
