For starters, the foreign national has committed a crime of perjury for stating that they were single and could get married. One has to wonder what other falsifications are going to come forward in this relationship. One should contact the consulate for their country in a local embassy for more information on this.

It is illegal for a British citizen to marry a foreign national in order to allow him or her to stay in the country. It is regularly done, but has severe penalties if discovered.

No. Marriage to a US citizen does not alter the fact that the foreign national is unlawfully present within the US and can be subject to deportation to his or her country of origin.

Not in any Western country. You can only be legally married to one person at a time.

Why would her nationality, citizenship, or his military status disqualify her for a divorce? It would be the same as for a foreign citizen married to a civilian, or an American citizen married to someone in the military.

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.

Nope. You have to wait for that divorce to be final. Marriage is marriage from any country to any country.

Yes. Just like people whoimmigrate to the U.S. and are already married, their marriage is valid.

You are already married, you can't apply for a license. The US will recognize a valid marriage in another country.

Yes. If you were legally married in a foreign country, then you are legally married in Maryland, including same-sex couples.

No, the couple would need to become legally married, the citizen spouse would need to apply for a change of status for the non citizen spouse.

No, if you are already married, you cannot legally get re-married in Las Vegas. This is because you already have a marriage license. However, you can definitely have a romantic vow renewal.

If your already married, Why the hell would you want to get married in another state?! Stick to one person.

You cannot get married if you are already married. A church may be willing to bless your marriage.

No. You can only be married to one person at a time, regardless of where you got married. In order to get a marriage license in the US, you have to swear that you are not already married. To lie about that and then get married is called bigamy and it is illegal in the USA.

You will get in jail and whoever got married to you will be sent back to their own country

It is called bigamy and is illegal. They are already married, they can't be married twice.

This depends on what country you live in; there are many different "legal ages", depending on the country. If the teen(s) are below the legal age, I think they can still get married with parental consent...
