I recently canceled a CR1. She was in Philippines. I want to do a new CR1 but to China. I have searched the net and found little info. I found something that said two were the lifetime maximums. But does anyone know of any limitations on filling CR1's? Any time limit between fillings? Will it be flagged in some manner? I canceled it in the NVC stage.

There is no limit to filing as such, you are allowed to file as many as you want, as soon as you are divorced from the ex and legally married to the new gal. However, as the previous poster said, it is a big red flag (though not as much as she actually got the visa) and you will face more scrutiny. Make sure current wife knows all about ex wife.

I second this, CO's at the Consulate in Guangzhou have been known to ask questions about petitioner's ex's and reports of denials have happened because the beneficiary hasn't been able to answer questions about the ex.

Hi what city is your wife from? Where is she living now? How did you 2 meet? If you don't mind me asking. You can private message me if you like.

I cancelled 2 fiance visa's for the Philippines and went to China and got married. It took 18 months to get her here. I was questioned by the CBP on re-enrty to the USA. I had to go through a lot, but we got approved. Read my time line and questions they asked my wife. You will have red flags all over your case. Depends on years apart that you filed.

Recently as in it still hasnt been cancled I guess since no confirmation yet. I just let it roll, figured it would eventually go away. I can see how that might have been the wrong move now. She is in GuangZhou. I plan to go next month and do the marriage. Would the K-1 be a better option in this particular case, just wait for marriage until in USA? I am not sure she will be ok with that though...

Are you married to both people? You won't be able to get a CR-1 at all if you were married to two people at once.

No. I am married to the filipino girl, in the philippines. I dont see why that would affect a marriage in china since the marriage is not recognized in USA. But I am talking to a lawyer on getting a divorce to the filipino just in case. Anyone with advice on that can pipe in ;)

The marriage IS recognised in the USA. Marriages from all over the world are recognised in the USA. If you do not get divorced first (before marriage to China girl), you cannot petition for your second wife, and may even be prosecuted for bigamy.

Um, you might want to rethink this. Marriages that are legal abroad are also legal in the US unless they violate US law, in which case your original petition wouldn't have been approved and gotten to the NVC. From the info you've given here, you are still legally married in the eyes of the US government.
