    Answered . Assuming your fiancé did not engage in fraud in her prior marriage and you are otherwise eligible for adjustment of status, there should be no issues. You should consult an experienced immigration attorney for a full assessment of the matter.

    Answered . I assume she is a USC. There will be questions about the bona fides of her previous marriage. If that marriage was genuine, and yours will be as well, you should not have any problems.

    Answered . I slightly disagree. Your wife will have to earn enough money to support you and her ex-husband. If her ex-husband has become a naturalized U. S. Citizen, then she will not be obligated to support him for I-864 affidavit of support purposes. However, your income may be taken into consideration since you have a valid employment authorization.

    I strongly recommend an appointment or teleconference with a competent and experienced immigration and visa. Good luck.
