Default Can I have him arrested for bigamy?

California

My husband married a woman in Texas but he has provided me NO evidence of any divorce. And I never received any notice.

Can I have him arrested for bigamy?
How should I handle this? What is the next best step?

I can't afford an attorney right now.

You can report the alleged bigamy to the authorities.

Whether anything comes of it is anybody's guess.

How about demanding proof of divorce?

If he won't come up with it, then you aren't married and you are free to leave.

Bigamy is a crime in California. If you have proof that your husband married again without a divorce from the existing marriage, you can file a complaint with the law enforcement.

Show the existing marriage certificate (or some proof) to the authorities in Texas and they WILL act.

Why did you marry him without proof?

It's not really clear if she is the first wife or second wife.

What's the goal? That certainly isn't going to save the marriage.
But yes he seems to have committed an offense if he married another while still married.
