I am now confused about my marital status.
SHORT STORY VERSION
I married woman last 1997. She was 21 yrs old that time. Had kids with her for the past decade.
Months before my marriage (1997) to her, I got informed that she was married first in civil to another guy while she was 18 yrs, due to her "immaturity" etc that time. That was last 1995, 2 years before our marriage.
NSO CENOMAR showed that my wife was married last 1995 only as mentioned above but not to me.
NSO Cert Marriage showed that we were also married last 1997.
Atty, question po sana, since I finally decided to leave our unhappy marriage:
1. Is my 1997 marriage to her void? Not legal?
2. Can I/she marry again legally anytime?
Financial support to kids is a different story that I cannot ignore and will continue to provide as much as possible to fit in.
Please advise po. Thanks and regards!
