    Answered . If your current marriage is genuine you should have no problem. You should not be concentrating on impressing the officer. Instead, you need to establish a record that you did not marry you current spouse for a primary purpose of getting a green card.

    Answered . As long as this is considered a legal and final divorce decree, yes, this is fine. If you live in the US, it is permitted to file and obtain divorce in the United States, and it is a legal divorce. Make sure, however, that you have an experienced immigration lawyer assisting you with this process.

    Answered . More facts are needed.

    A lot depends on whether or not you were legally residing in Miami at the time of the divorce and whether or not all procedures were properly followed.
