Atlanta, GA |
Filed under: Divorce Bigamy

i got divorced from first wife after 8 months of my second marriage

and now second marriage is filing for divorce which can lead to bigamy punishment ?

Honestly i didnt know abt this law ..

My question is some lawyers are telling me that i can be saved from prison by paying fine and doing community service

i don't have any criminal background what so ever , is it possible that i can be safe from not going to prison ?

It's extremely rare that this would even be prosecuted. You should consult a local criminal lawyer.

Your divorce lawyer (and you need to have one) can give guidance. It is possible you might never be prosecuted depending on how the divorce goes.
