My daughter got married only to find out several months later that he was still married to his first wife, then she helped him get divorced in another state without the first wife knowing he divorced her. my daughter has left him and wants him to get into trouble for the Bigamy, what does she need to do?
When she was helping him get a secret divorce, wasn't she conspiring to cover it up?
Before you go at him with bigamy, have you look at all of the accomplice acts, cover up acts and allegations of unclean hands that may be visited upon her?

I am sorry that your family is going through this. My collegue gave you an outstanding answer in that your daughter is opening herself up to the possiblity of investigation as she was part of the original process. However if she insists on filing charges, most local courts allow the application of a private complaint or you may bring the matter to the attention of your local district attny and see what they say, take care and I hope your family finds the peace and happiness everyone deserves. Take care.
