Yes, it can happen like that, but it is dangerous. Why? Because that lady still had to prove that the first marriage was not fake. A fake marriage is a PERMANENT bar to ever getting Residency. So if the first one was fake, it doesn't matter that the new was is real.

Let me know if you need anything else, but please do not forget that positive rating. Thank you!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
