Though the husband has contracted second marriage without getting divorce orders in first marriage, the offence of bigamy will get nullified on the fact that the husband had got a divorce order subsequently.
It all depends on time overlap between the date of second marriage, divorce decree in first marriage etc on how to get the bigamy case quashed in high court and also get the second marriage ratified in eyes of law.
It is not that your sister's marriage is at risk, but a good lawyer can save your brother in law and also the sister's marriage.
