Generally a U.S. Citizen may petition for a spouse to become a Lawful Permanent Resident (to get a "Green Card") regardless of whether the U.S. Citizen achieved immigration benefits through another marriage and regardless of whether there was dating prior to a first marriage being finally disolved through divorce. Additionally, the U.S. Citizen can apply for a fiancee visa to enable a fiancee to enter the U.S. in preparation for marriage.
Sometimes a divorce soon after attaining citizenship, followed by a new petition for another person to get immigration benefits through marriage will trigger a higher level of scrutinty by the USCIS in processing a new case.
