You presented this legal issue about four times now and the analysis remains the same; anyone trying to marry anywhere in the United States or in a foreign country while being married to another person is committing an act of bigamy and polygamy and it’s against the law in the United States.

It can be quite complex, but is possible, to divorce someone living abroad. I suggest you contact a family law attorney who has done it before, or see an immigration attorney for a referral.

If you and your husband are separated, then you should seek a divorce. If he wants to remarry, then he will have to file for divorce if he plans to petition his new wife.

If your husband gets married in another country, while married to you, then the question will be, can you get proof?...

Kevin L Dixler

No, probably not. The laws don’t allow those who visit to have immigrant intent. The law presumes immigrant intent, so an applicant for a non-immigrant visa must overcome the presumption.

Otherwise, they can be denied and may possibly be charged with misrepresentation which is an...

The biggest risk in applying for a third time is that if your parents have a 10 year visa and their request to extend status is denied then their 10 year visa will be automatically revoked and it may be harder for them to get a new tourist visa in the future. There is no way to predict the odds of... Read more »

I assume that your dad's name on your birth certificate is Gus and in order to get Greek citizenship you need to show that Gus is Konstantinos. Making changes to a birth certificate is done through the Vital Records office. https://www.michigan.gov/mdhhs/0,5885,7-339-71551_4645_4933---,00.html... Read more »
