  1. Second marriage without the permission of the arbitration council and consent of the first wife is an offense in Pakistan. If you file a complaint before family COurt, he may get punishment of up to one-year imprisonment and 5 lac rupees fine. You also have the right to claim maintenance and your dower amount and a separate home from your husband through court or you may get a divorce on the same ground.

    Canadian Government also not recognized a second marriage, So you may inform the Canadian Embassy in Pakistan regarding this fraudulent marriage by your Husband.
