I have been told that my husband was still married when he married me, I have the information relating to the marriage, registration numbers and spouses surname, I also know the first name but don't know for sure the spelling as you can spell it two ways. the form for the decree absolute wont help me if I don't know if the spouse has applied for a divorce since marriage in 1980. Do they not have some reference to go along side the marriage certificate. I am confused as to where I go now. If you look up the marriage records it just shows you the date and details of the marriage, how do you find out if that still stands if you don't know the person to ask the information.
How will I find the information, is it expensive to get a copy of the marriage certificate to get the full name of spouse. I wont know where or when the divorce if there is one, where filed from. Do you have any suggestions please.
