If my husband did not get divorced from his first wife, is our marriage legal?

Question Details:

My husband married me and was still married to his children's mother. He had filed for divorce from her about 6 months before we wed. When we returned he cancelled his divorce from her. We have since seperated but now he has filed divorce from her again. Am I free to marry again or will his divorce from her make our marriage valid? I also would like to know if I can continue using his last name, I have been for the last year. Isn't there a law against being married to 2 people at the same time.
