Under the law, a marriage entered into for the sake of procuring an immigration benefit, must be a marriage of good faith. The burden of proof is on the petitioner and must be clear and convincing.

This is a free country. You can marry anyone you want. However, if you are holding temporary green card and your current spouse would not sign on your petition to remove the restraint, you will have a problem. Good luck!

Marriage, or re-marriage, is a matter of state law, not immigration law. Generally, you must both be adults, not currently married, and not related.

Is your question concerning your ability to sponsor another spouse for immigration? If so, you must specify whether you are a US citizen or a resident alien.

There are now special rules applying to marriages contracted through marriage brokers.

You need to consult a lawyer.
