A Virginia Man is Charged with Two Counts of Bigamy; Faces up to 10 Years in Prison

In Henrico County, Virginia, a man was arrested for two separate counts of bigamy for marrying two different women before finalizing his divorce from his first wife. According to the article, Frank Ernest Blake, Jr. was simply unaware the divorce from his first wife had never been finalized. He states, "I got papers in the mail saying that we were divorced, but evidently you get two sets of papers. I signed my name and everything on it." While Mr. Blake's admitted ignorance of the legal divorce process might mitigate the circumstances of the first count of bigamy, his explanation for his second is less sympathetic. He and his dutiful third wife, Jessica, stated they didn't believe his second marriage was "real," since it was only two weeks in duration before he and his second wife separated.

What can I do if my spouse has stopped paying the court ordered support?

A party who is obligated to pay child support or spousal support under a court order is required to continue to pay until the court changes or terminates that obligation. If a party is not paying support, the court can use its contempt powers to punish the party who is not paying the support and to order that the arrearage (past due support) be paid.
