If you get married in Another Country, you have to have a ceremony in America. You should get married in the state you live in to meet residency requirements.

No. That is not legal in any European country.

Firstly, if the person is married in an another country and has come to a particular country illegally it is surely invalid to marry the person. Another thing, if the person is a citizen of that particular country in which he has married it is his right to first take a citizen of that country in which he is going to marry and then he can marry a person another to his own country.

No, you can only be married to one person at a time.

No if he/she marry in another country the marriage will be not validated.

Yes. You do not have to live in the same state (or country) in which you get married. You can live in one state (or country), and get married in another.

If you are already legally married and "got married" in another country you are committing bigamy, which is a crime. It can get you deported and even jailed. Also, your second "marriage" is invalid.

If the marriage is legal in the other country, they are married everywhere in the world.

No, you may not marry in one country if married in another. It would come up in an immigration hearing.

No, you would have to go and get divorced in that country sorry

If you are married under the laws of another country, you are considered married throughout the world. If you have one wife, you cannot legally marry another. It is bigamy and is against the law in the United States.

Get full citizenship or get married and live in another country!

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

I do not think they can. I doubt that the state (or the country) will recognized the marriage of two illegal immigrants who married in another country. After all as far as the government is concerned "they are not here."

Of course not! You can only be married to one person at a time anywhere in the world.

You cannot be married to more than one person at a time. If you are married in the US, you are considered married throughout the world. The divorce can be obtained in any country.

This depends on the laws of the country in which you reside. Generally it is against the law to be married to more then one person at a time.

Not legally! If they lie on the marriage license application, they would be guilty of perjury as well as bigamy.

Yes, like if you live in Pennsylvania, you can't have gay marriage, but you can go to Florida and do it, then come back

It is not good in another country. The license must be issued by the country where the ceremony is.

You cannot legally marry if your divorce is not final, even if you go to another country it is still bigamy.

No, because different countries have different marriage laws.

yes if you are legally divorced there should be no problem

Yes you can, as long as it is in the same country.

The United States recognizes any legal marriage performed in another country.
