I would consult an immigration attorney. It is illegal for someone to get married for the sole purpose of gaining US citizenship. If you have been married less than two years there is a good chance that the person could be deported if the marriage is dissolved.

Some women like married men. Although personally I think its horrible to cheat on your spouse.

Legally, you can only be married to one spouse. If you have more than one spouse it is bigomy, which is illegal.

Spouse = married. Can't have one without the other.

You should probably try to get over it. Unless you wish to disrespect your spouse and leave her for another person, and injure your reputation, you should stay with your spouse.

You should ask him/her straight up. Explain to your spouse the doubts and fears your having. If you have a healthy relationship, he/she should be somewhat understanding. Tell him/her that you don't feel comfortable applying for the greencard at this time, but would like to wait a few years. If he/she becomes extremely angry or agitated by your suggestion, then you will know that he/she has an interest besides just you. I am married to someone who will eventually get a greencard out of our marriage. We have a good relationship, but even I have had a doubt or two. We waited a year before filing any paperwork for my spouse's greencard. When I felt those slight tinges of doubt, my spouse was very understanding and reassured me that he would have married me no matter what citizenship I had

I married a woman. She is now my spouse and I am hers.

No. In Western countries you can only be legally married to one person at a time. If the person you "married" was already married to someone else your marriage is invalid. Your intended spouse must obtain a divorce from his/her spouse before they can marry you.

Yes you can. However, you should consider filing for divorce instead. A legal separation means you would still be married. If you stay married and you die, he would be your surviving spouse and would inherit all or some of your property by law. You would be his surviving spouse if he died.You should consult with an attorney who can review your situation and explain your rights, obligations and options.Yes you can.

If the separated spouse is still legally married to the debtor spouse and/or co-signed the original obligation while married, yes.

You are the "spouse" until you are no longer legally married.

An international who is married to a US citizen can get his/her green card in the following manner. The US citizen should file in Form I -130 to sponsor the spouse. The Spouse should then file in form I-485 to adjust the status to that of a lawful permanent resident.

Spouse indicates that you're married. No, it is not illegal for your spouse to get pregnant.

That is the decision of a lender not the spouse who wishes to prevent the action.

Yes, since spouse should be on mortgage & can help you qualify for more.

If you must ask this question then you already know. If you think they are and you suspect then they are

Many polygamists are legally married to their first spouse, and only religiously or 'spiritually' married to the other spouse, without a legal marriage liscence.

If you feel you have to be a detective to get any bad or good views on your spouse then there is something very wrong with your relationship. Since you're either living together or married you should know more than you do. You could be sly and talk about memories with his/her family and see what you can dig up from that. If you suspect criminal charges of any sort have been laid against your spouse then you should be able to find them in the police archives.

No, as long as he & his x-spouse are divorced. Then it is fine.

if your spouse did not legally divorce his former wife,you are not married,he is a bigamist and your "union" is not legal

User Avatar

Generally no, you cannot sue your spouse while you are still married. Generally, the only lawsuit a spouse can file against a spouse is a complaint for divorce.

No, she was never married.
