    Contact the District Attorney's office in Pasedena Texas where you were married, as that is where the crime was committed. Btw, Bigamy is a 3rd degree FELONY in Tx.

    Luckily, Ever state that you mention, NH, Utah & TX all treat bigamy as a Felony.

    I know I am married to a bigamist, what should I do?

    If you know you are married to a bigamist, go to the police immediately. Also retain an attorney quickly to represent you in your annulment. If you have proof you are married to a bigamist, take both marriage licenses with you to the police, this will help speed the complaint process.

    What if I am not sure my spouse is a bigamist?
    If you are not sure, contact the previous spouse. Chances are he or she will be willing to help you. If the previous spouse is not willing to cooperate, try to secure the marriage license and look for the divorce decree or ask the police to contact the previous spouse.

    Marriage licenses and divorce decrees are difficult to obtain because every state has different regulations and there is NO centralized database in the United States of marriage records.
