Q: What can I do if my husband is trying to get engaged and married in his country
Kyndra L Mulder
Kyndra L Mulder answered on Nov 24, 2021

Not sure if this is an immigration question. There is nothing you can do at this point to stop him. Specially if this behavior is in a country were it is legal to have more than one wife. If he were to marry a second wife, according to US law that marriage is invalid from its beginning.

It does not sound like you were charged with any criminal violation so you may answer no if asked if you were ever arrested. If not asked you do not need to provide information. If asked you should answer truthfully.
