A: Yes, this happens. It is unclear if your friend may have other issues, where she was already petitioned by another U.S. citizen or green card holder. U.S. citizens are disqualified from petitioning some who did not previously prove that they entered into a good faith relationship with their first spouse based upon love and mutual moral respect.

If this is the situation, the I-130 petition may be denied without any consideration of the second marriage. If there was a denial of the first I-130 petition, then I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any other complications.
