I got my 10yr GC through marriage to a US citizen, before I could get my 10yr card she left me and I got my GC without an interview, later on we got divorced. I went to my home country few days back and got married there but an attorney told me that I cant sponsor her until I get naturalized, so she came over on a student visa and she is studying here in springfield, IL. Things went bad and we split up and now she is threatening me for marriage fraud. I did not get married in USA yet can she do anything legally? please help
You are still married to her even though yo got married in oversea. She may have misrepresented the US Embassy by not divulging that she was married when she applied for a F-1 visa. I don't see any problem for you except you may hire a family lawyer and file for divorce.

If you got married in your home country, then you are married. But it is surprising that your wife got a student visa. It sounds like she has immigrant intent and maybe she misrepresented at her interview. I'm sure the attorney gave you good advice, and I'm sure she didn't suggest your wife try for a student visa. Good luck.
I would not place so much personal identifying information in any public forum if I were you. What you need is an immediate confidential discussion with a licensed immigration attorney who knows criminal aspects of applicable federal and state laws.
