Today one of my husband friend came home for dinner. He was marry 4 years ago in Turkey but his relationship ended up in divorce( he is turkish ,she is American). Now, he found a new love in his life, which he is planning to get married in USA. He was telling us tonight he divorced here in America, I was telling him( my husband's friend ) if he got married in Turkey he needed to divorce in turkey, which means he will see as polygamist. He told me no, if he divorced here it is legal in Turkey. Can someone help me ....

He is correct. Divorcing in the US should be valid in Turkey, not that it really matters because his marriage is legal in the US, his divorce is legal in the US so his new marriage would be as well.

You only need to divorce in the country/state you LIVE in now, not where you got married.

Actually she is partially right. He will not need to divorce, but he will need to update his family registry to reflect the divorce. As in Turkey it will look like he is already married when he goes to marry again. Any legal document filed on the new marriage will look as if he is already married.
