That depends on the marriage laws of your state - but from an immigration perspective, a marriage abroad is the same as a marriage here. As long as the marriage was valid and you have evidence of the marriage, it should not make things any easier to do it again here. Good luck!

If you got married legally back home ... you don't need to get married again in the US.

Hi there, if your marriage was valid and legal at inception in the country it was entered into, and you have proof of the validity of the marriage that convinces U.S. authorities, such as a certified marriage certificate, this will suffice as proof of your marriage and you will not need to "re-marry" in the U.S.
