I am a Washington attorney and have no knowledge about the laws, rules or procedures in the State of Texas. If your matter was taking place in Washington, my answer would be as follows:
Who is "us"? Do you two have children together? What do you mean he committed bigamy with you? Are you saying he was already married when you and he married? When did the two of you marry?

When you say you want to go back home, do you mean to another state or another county? I think I need the answers to these questions before answering further.
