Knowing the state you live would be helpful :) There are some states that have laws against adultery. Technically, if you live with someone else while you are still legally married, then it would be adultery. There are no doubt laws still "on the books" in some states that pertain to the issue of adultery, but given the general atmosphere of today's society they would not be subject to prosecutory actions. It would however give the other spouse a strong argumen for whatever he sought concerning the dissolution of the marriage; such as custody of minor children, spousal maintenance, and so forth.

If your first spouse is still alive and you are not divorced, then you are still married to that spouse and if you remarry it is the crime of bigamy.

If you are still married when you marry your new spouse the second marriage will not be legal. Even if you divorce your first spouse during your second marriage, it will still not be legal. You have to be divorced BEFORE you marry again.

I am married but living apart from my spouse there is no legal separation my souse will be receiving a personal injury settlement how do I get my portion while we are still married

Absolutely not. You would still be married to your first spouse and your remarriage would be invalid. You cannot be legally remarried while you are still married to your spouse. Papers "about to be signed" are not signed and carry no legal significance whatsoever. You are not divorced until the judge signs the decree and it is entered into the record.

While the divorce is pending, the spouse is still the spouse, and the legal status does not change. On the day that the divorce is granted, the spouse is no longer the spouse, and reverts to non-related.

Legally, you can only be married to one spouse. If you have more than one spouse it is bigomy, which is illegal.

You are the "spouse" until you are no longer legally married.

Yes, but your current spouse has much stronger grounds for divorce. So, it's legal, but incredibly stupid.

Not if you are still married.

If the separated spouse is still legally married to the debtor spouse and/or co-signed the original obligation while married, yes.

User Avatar

No, as long as he & his x-spouse are divorced. Then it is fine.

Yes you can. However, you should consider filing for divorce instead. A legal separation means you would still be married. If you stay married and you die, he would be your surviving spouse and would inherit all or some of your property by law. You would be his surviving spouse if he died.You should consult with an attorney who can review your situation and explain your rights, obligations and options.Yes you can.

In US law you can only be legally married to one person at at a time. In most cases the first marriage is considered legal; and any subsequent marriage while still married to the original spouse, is considered invalid.

Generally no, you cannot sue your spouse while you are still married. Generally, the only lawsuit a spouse can file against a spouse is a complaint for divorce.

Being separated doesn't mean anything. You're still married, so rules pertaining to married couples would still apply.

Generally, if she was married to the decedent at the time of death then she is entitled to a portion of the estate as the surviving spouse.

The second marriage does not count, in any state. So, no, it is not legal in Vegas. If you married a second time while still legally married to another, you have committed a crime. It is called Bigamy and you are subject to fines, jail or both. You IS in a whole lot of trouble.
