"If a woman is married in the Philippines, can she still marry in the US, or can she get the marriage annulled in the US so she can marry a US citizen? Does the US recognize the foreign marriage?"
1 Answer from Attorneys
In general, unless the marriage breaks U.S. state laws, marriages which are legally performed and valid abroad are also legally valid in the United States. Inquiries regarding the validity of a marriage abroad should be directed to the attorney general of the state in the United States where the parties to the marriage live.
