Can you remarrying if still married abroad?

Postby ricky1874 » Sat Apr 04, 2020 11:28 pm

I have a friend that married a filipina in the Philippines. Things didn't workout between them and he never filed the papers for her to come to the USA. He now has found someone in the USA that he wants to marry. Can he still marry her if he is still married to the woman in the Philippines? Or, does he have to get a divorce from the woman in the Philippines first?

From my understanding,... you are still married in the Philippines, but single here in the USA. You're still single in the USA because you never filled the papers. I think after you marry a Filipina you have to remarry here in the USA once she gets here. But it's best to consult an attorney.
