Yes. Her first marriage and her second marriage overlapped by 3 years until her first husband death.
Her second marriage was not finalized until a couple of months after we married in a different country.
We had to get married here sooner than we thought because of the laws of Kuwait and the strict rules here.
We were married in May 25 2012, but the paperwork wasn't finalized in Kuwait until Jan 13, but her second husbands paperwork wasn't finalized until Aug 12,
So our marriage date shows May 25th, 2012 and her last husbands divorce decree shows Aug 2012. Will that be a problem for us
How are suppose to do that. We have to divorce and marry again or can we get married in the philippines and use that marriage license.
Her previous divorce is legally terminated already.
Her previous marriage was already in the courts when we got married here. Does that not mean anything.
Can we get a marriage license from the philippines and use that in lue of the kuwait marriage license.
Would that cause any problems.
Well I am asking about which marriage license I can use in the states.
We can get married in the philippines, I know that.
But when applying for her Green Card, which can I use in the states.
If I file for her to have a fiance visa, will they check to see if we are married here in Kuwait.
Does it matter on a fiance visa if we are married in a forgien country or not.
Ok. Thank you very much.
I think that is all the questions I have right now.
Would it cost anything for you to look at my marriage contract.
It says that the marriage wasn't legalized until Jan 8, 2013. for the date of May 25, 2012.
Basically we weren't legally married until Jan 2013, but our marriage ceremony happened May 2012.
So that would mean techincally we were married after the divorce.
So would that make us ok.
