I apologise for the delay in replying to your post.  It is not legally possible in Australia to be married to more than one person.  I had a quick look at his immigration file (SP122/1, N63/10070) which has been digitised, and it appears that Miroslav Duranovic declared he was married to Stefana (married in Greta NSW) and did not mention a marriage in Croatia.  If he was still married in Croatia at the time he married in Australia, he would have committed bigamy.

thank you for your reply normally marige is zero how it is possible to regularize?

A person can cancel a marriage by divorce. Miroslav would have had to apply to divorce in Croatia, as that is where his first wife was.

Please let me know if this doesn't answer your question, as I am not sure what you mean by regularize.

he did not divorce croatia is arriving in Australia he is married What are the paperwork for an annulment for bigamy in australia

I am not sure whether it is possible, or what the process would be for you to annul a marriage that is not your own. I recommend you contact the NSW Births, Deaths and Marriages registry where the marriage was registered.  Their website is www.bdm.nsw.gov.au

hello What are the risks of bigamy?

Marriage and bigamy are covered by the Marriage Act 1961 (Commonwealth of Australia), you can see the section of the Act that relates to bigamy at  http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/cth/consol_act/ma196185/s94.html.  As the marriage occurred in 1957, you would need to consult a lawyer about the legal status of the marriage.

I must consult a lawyer in Australia?
I lived in France

I'm not qualified to answer your question about bigamy in Australia, and you will need to ask a legal specialist.  I did a quick search online and found some sites where you may be able to get help, but I cannot vouch for the quality of the advice you will receive. Try:

thank you Tonia how can I receive a small free legal aid in Australia

I'm not sure if you would be entitled to free legal aid in Australia, as it is for low-income people who live in the State (eg NSW) where the service is provided.

I had a look at http://www.justanswer.com/australian-law/ and http://legallawyers.com.au/legal-topics/ask-a-lawyer/ and both sites offer legal advice for around AU$80.
