Frequently Asked Questions

What's the law on bigamy in all states?

The laws may vary from state to state on how to handle the illegal activity, but some will fine the person and add punishments based on the circumstances. Other states may provide the spouse with civil litigation as an additional option to seek compensation for the mental pain, suffering and trauma from the actions of the bigamist.

What are the penalties for bigamy in California?

Penal Code 283 PC – Bigamy penalties. (“Bigamy is punishable by a fine not exceeding ten thousand dollars ($10,000) or by imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding one year or in the state prison.”) Same.See also Penal Code 18 PC.

Is the crime of bigamy a felon or a felony?

Bigamy crimes are often felonies, and the defendant has the serious burden of proof to either defend against the charges or that there was reasonable proof available that the other spouse was dead, or the marriage was not still in effect. The lawyer hired for these situations will attempt to protect the person’s rights.

Is it illegal to remarry after committing bigamy?

Remarriage is possible in these instances, and bigamy does not happen. Good faith is not necessarily a valid defense when committing bigamy in the United States.
