  1. A husband can not do a second marriage without the permission of the first wife as same is an offence in Pakistan. if he does so, on conviction upon complaint be punishable with the simple imprisonment which may extend to one year and with fine of five hundred thousand rupees.

    you may claim maintenance at any time which could be started within one month. A husband is duty bound to provide maintenance to her wife. If he is threating to you then you may also file a complaint with police.
