If your husband is a Filipino (and remains a Filipino up to this date), and you were validly married (whether here in the Philippines or abroad) you can file charges of bigamy against him in Philippine courts. You can also ask for child support.

I will assume that you are both Filipinos and are both in the Philippines.

1. The second marriage is void.

2. The first marriage is valid.

3. You may have your marriage annulled/nullified, if there are grounds available to you.

4. You may file a case of bigamy against him.

5. Your child with him is legitimate. His children under the second marriage are illegitimate.

6. You may ask for child support.

Curious lang, why only now after 16 years?

the proper charge will be bigamy. in order to implicate the second wife, you will have to prove that she knew that he was married and you were still alive
