Of course not! You are only legally allowed to be married to one person at a time, it does not matter where you live or where you got married.


He is guilty of bigamy. You can start the divorce process.


Not legally. If you are married anywhere you are considered married in the US


if your spouse was married already when u got married, your marriage is not legal, no matter where you are



Yes, she is legally married if the wedding was legal in Mexico. If she lied about her age in order to get the marriage license, then no. The US recognizes legal marriages performed in other countries.



As long as it was legally documented it is valid.


Yes, but as you pointed out, your spouse needs to begin the application for the immigration and naturalization process.


No. No one is allowed to be married to more than one person at a time in the US or Mexico.


Legally you can marry them in Mexico and then bring them back to the US. They are allowed to be in the US if they are married to a US Citizen.


If you are a US Citizen, legally divorced or widowed, you can request permanent residency for your spouse, regardless of how you gained your citizenship.


No, if you are legally married anywhere in the world then the marriage is considered legal under US law. Any subsequent marriage while still married anywhere would be legally invalid and you could be arrested for bigamy.


If the marriage is legal in Mexico, it should be legal in the US. One exception is for same-sex marriage. If you marry someone of the same-sex in Mexico City, that marriage will not be recognized in most of the United States.


File the paperwork through their respective home state. Just go to the county courthouse, and they'll show you where to go from there.


THE ONLY ANSWER IS; yes.simply, yes.it matters that you are legally married somewhere, not where.you are fine.


If you are legally married in Mexico that must be disclosed when you apply for a marriage license in the United States. You will be expected to legally dissolve your marriage in order to remarry. If you lie on the application your marriage won't be valid and the Mexican marriage may surface at some future date and cause a lot of trouble.


Generally no. You cannot legally marry anyone if you are still married to a different person, regardless of where that marriage was performed.


YES. If you get married in the U.S. to a person who is not legally residing in the United States (i.e. your finace is an "illegal alien"), your new spouse, upon applying for permanent residency papers after you get married, will almost certainly be deported back to Mexico. Once deported, your spouse will be unable to legally enter the U.S. again for a period of anywhere from 5 to 20 years. Your status as a U.S. citizen has no bearing on your spouse's right to stay in the United States if he or she entered the U.S. illegally in the first place. I live in Mexico, and this is what happened to two very close friends of mine. One is a U.S. citizen, the other is a Mexican who was living in the U.S. without legal papers. They're now living in Mexico with no hope of returning together to the U.S. for 15 more years. If you want to get married to a Mexican who is not legally living in the U.S., GET MARRIED IN MEXICO.

Yes. The US recognizes marriages from other countries.


It can be if you do the right paperwork through the Mexican government and get a blood test there, etc. I got married in Jamaica and it was much easier


No. Help me in the battle to conquer cancer. Please support my fundraising efforts at www.conquercancer.ca/goto/donate


Marriage is a wonderful event. Yes, if a female US citizen legally marries a non US citizen in the state of Michigan, they are indeed legally married.


not legally, only if you get married.
