Getting married again after a divorce

Hi there, I have a quick question, I did search the forum but couldn't find any answers specific to me so any help/advice would be greatfully appreciated!

I came across to the United States in 2005 on a K1 Visa, got married to a US citizen, but, and to cut to the chase, got divorced in 2008. I'm currently a permanent resident on a 10 year Green Card, luckily I have met the lady for me and am planning on getting married again soon. My question is, do I have to file any paperwork with the USCIS or is it just as straight forward as getting married again? Any help or advice would be awesome, just dont want to offend anyone at the USCIS by not following the correct procedures,

thanks in advance,

Carl

Its as straight forward as getting married again. But if you change residence, you need to inform USCIS of where you're living, which you would need to do even it you were not remarrying.

This was hardly his question, but your answer is still wrong. There is no rule or law that forbids a legal resident who came on a K-1 or CR-1 visa, from filing a spousal visa for someone else if their old marriage was terminated.

It appears you read this part:

Who May Not File Form I-130?

5. A husband or wife, if you gained lawful permanent resident status by virtue of a prior marriage to a U. S. citizen or lawful permanent resident,

and you neglected to read this part:

unless:

A. A period of five years has elapsed since you became a lawful permanent resident; or

B. You can establish by clear and convincing evidence that the prior marriage through which you gained your immigrant status was not entered into for the purpose of evading any provision of the immigration laws; or

C. Your prior marriage through which you gained your immigrant status was terminated by the death of your former spouse.
