  1. Two ways, check the court records in the state and county where he says he was divorced or hire a licensed private investigator to do it for you.


  2. An attorney should be able to check those records in only a few minutes with a first and last name and a county or especially with a case number. Keep in mind that even if he is still legally married (I hope not), you may have many rights as if you were his wife (Putative spouse rights). I think you had better put your mind at ease by checking the court records. I hope this helps.
