There is no waiting period for a USC to marry after divorce. As long as the marriage is bona fide, namely, genuine, for love and affection, not to procure immigration benefits, you are OK.

You can marry him at anytime once he is divorced. If he got his Green Card less than 5 years ago he will have to prove that his first marriage was bona fide (but presumably he has done so already since he was granted residence based on it). Consult with an attorney for a more detailed explanation of what you can expect in the filing and interview process.

There is no waiting period. There may be questions of fraud by USCIS.
The answer provided here is general in nature and does not take into account other factors that may need to be reviewed for a more precise answer. You should consult with an immigration attorney before taking any action. The answer here is not intended to create an attorney-client relationship.
There is no mandatory waiting period. The shorter the time, the more scrutiny. However, your facts are very complicated and could present serious problems during evaluation of your case by USCIS. He can petition for you as soon as you are married, but you need to consult with a lawyer to prepare your case.
