If you marry your ex-wife and apply for her to immigrate, be prepared for a barrage of questions about your divorce from her and your divorce from your US-citizen wife. This fact pattern raises an issue of "sham divorce". The USCIS will be investigating this question: Did you divorce your first wife with the plan to remarry her, once you were firmly settled in the USA through a marriage to a US citizen? If so, that is a type of immigration fraud. You must be prepared to prove that all of your actions were in good faith.

If you obtained your lawful permanent resident status through marriage to a U.S. citizen, you cannot petition another spouse within 5 years from becoming a permanent resident. Please note that remarrying your previous spouse and filing a petition for her may trigger a more thorough review of the petition and, depending on the circumstances, a review of your previous petition and naturalization. I strongly recommend that you seek a lawyer's advice before you proceed with filing a petition for your previous spouse.
