Jeralyn Lawrence quoted in “My Marriage Wasn’t Legal. What Happens to My House?” Article on NJ.com

 

Q. I’m a veteran and bought my house via a VA loan. I was always the only one on the loan. My wife and I were together as husband and wife on the deed. When she died a few years ago, I recorded a new deed just with my own name. Over a year ago, I remarried so I recorded with my county record in office a new deed that had both me and my new wife on it. Then she died, and I recently I found out that my first wife had a legal husband the entire time she was married to me in China. She basically lied when we got married but I married in good faith. Can my dead wife’s legal husband in China claim half of my house because his wife was the owner with me?
