Where do I go from here?

1 Answers. Asked on Jun 09th, 2017 on Family Law - Nevada
More details to this question:
I got married in 2013 when I was 16 years old. I didn't find out until 2016 that he was still married to a previous wife. I asked lawyers in my state and they said that my marriage wasn't valid I dont need a divorce... I am wanting to terminate his parental rights based on the grounds he hasn't helped me with our son since he was 1 year old and he is almost 3.

You don't indicate where you were married, or where "my state" is, and those facts could alter the answers to some aspects of the case.  In Nevada, at least, the legitimacy of the marriage is unrelated to parental rights and obligations; presuming you are in Nevada and Nevada law is relevant, you should consider our law of child custody, here, child support, here, and termination of parental rights, here.  Then you should confer with family law specialist who knows all of this stuff very well to plan out exactly what to do and how to do it.
