Customary dovorce

I married in 2013-Nov as per hindu marriage act and got customary divorce which is written on  insurance policy letterhead paper. Find attached such document

Now wife saying that she did not sign paper.Elders  are willing to come and give evidence in court

In year 2020,I had done 2nd marriage at USA  as per foreign marriage act and wife got that marriage copy and she filed bigamy and cheating

Query 1 : Now Can I apply divorce showing this customary divorce

Query 2: Can I show this as proof of this customary divorce and hence  no cheating done

Query 3: DO wife need to proove sapthadi and hommam since my 2nd marriage done as per foreign marriage act or marriage certificate is enough to prove bigamy

A customary divorce is a recognised method of separation without involving the court if such a custom is recognised by marriage laws. ... It said under Section 4 of the Special Marriage Act, at the time of marriage neither party should have a living spouse.

Which community in Hindus do you belong where as per hindu marriage act you got customary divorce and stated to have been permissible without filing a petition for divorce and can be written on  insurance policy letterhead paper. ??
