Polygamy is not the same as bigamy. Bigamy is the CRIME of marrying a person while being legally married to someone else. Polygamy is the CUSTOM of having more than one spouse at the same time. It includes only situations where the parties to all the marriages are fully aware of all other marital relationships and deliberately chose to practice polygamy for CULTURAL OR RELIGIOUS reasons. The DS260 form asks whether you are coming to the US to practice polygamy. If you are not coming to the US to practice polygamy for cultural or religious reasons, you should mark "NO."
Good afternoon. That's a difficult question to answer because polygamy requires intent. Bigamy, however, is being married to two people at the same time. You may have an issue of bigamy rather than polygamy.
You definitely need to speak with an immigration attorney. Get good advice on how to handle the situation so you don't have additional problems.
This is an immigration issue, re-tagging as such.
Your second marriage is void until marriage one is terminated.
