He's made this VERY complicated by waiting. In order to annul the marriage from wife #2, he's going to not only need to file an annulment, he's going to have to serve it on the representative of her estate. What's he been doing for the4 last two years, before he decided to try and straighten this out? This is NOT a series of legal steps which it is likely he'll be able to do correctly without an EXPERIENCED attorney.
Your friend has most unusual facts, and the probability, and possibility, of him accomplishing an annulment of his marriage to a deceased individual in pro per is slim to none without a vast knowledge of the law. Although no attorney can guarantee that this would be an easy or inexpensive task, it is highly recommended that he retain a very experienced and competent Family Law Practitioner; otherwise, it is anticipated that things will not go well for him in Family Law court.
