I got married my first wife 2 years ago and she petitioned me for green card and after a while we had some conflicts and we decided we don't want to go ahead in this so we didn't go to the interview and the case has been denied because we didn't show up for the interview and case closed and we got divorced , then later on I met my second wife and we dated us together then we got married and she petitioned me for green card, does my first marriage green card petition will make any problems in my second wife petition !?
The first marriage and the quik remarriage is going to raise some red flags regardinging marriage fraud. Also, if you did not show up for the initial interview you may have been referred to immigration court for removal proceedings. If this is the case you will need to adjust throught the court.
If you have moved and not changed your address you need to do so. You also nbeed to check with the court to make sure you were not ordered removed.
I suggest you retain an experienced immigration attorney.
I agree with attorney Mulder retain counsel before filing. Your attorney can request a copy of your previous filings with a FOIA request. Whatever information was provided in those applications should not conflict with information you provide when applying now (for example date of entry) in addition you are not certain as to what occurred after your failure to appear to interview if your case got referred to the immigration court then you will need to start there.
Consult an immigration lawyer before filing anything. I cannot emphasize that enough. Filing on your own can do irreparable damage to your current sitution and prevent you from ever obtaining permanent residence in the U.S. Do not make your current situation worse by going this alone and without an attorney.

This scenario always make me nervous, unless I know exactly everything that went on with the original permanent residency application. On paper it looks bad, so you must hire competent counsel to assist you at every step. I've been to interviews at the Dallas office and they heavily scrutinize even the most routine cases. Don't make a move without consulting an experienced immigration lawyer.
