Hi guys

I need a legal advice. I am a Philippine citizen, i got married to my gf at that time in 2007 in the US. She is a US citizen. But it didnt work out, i didnt want to be a husband that waits for her at home just to be an eventual US citizen. Anyway, a few months into the marriage, i decided to go back in the philippines and we were not able to save the relationship. Fastforward to 2012, i have a new gf, we had a child, and we decided to get married. We got a civil marriage in city hall. My previous wife, already filed for annulment in the US but the final declaration has not been issued before i got married again.although she s aware of my current status and she doesnt want any involvement with me. My question is, do i have to file for annulment for my 2nd marriage? Or is automatically void? Do i have to remarry my 2nd wife? Legally, i am married to her in the philippines.

Also, i myself has been offered a job in the US, and i can bring my legal family with me. Can i still use the marriage documents issued to my 2nd wife and i for the US immigration? Or do i need to marry her again? If i do have to marry her again, how do i get another cenomar?

I hope someone here can help me.

There are reputable immigration lawyers in the US who have offices here in metro manila.

It would be to your benefit and peace of mind to consult them about your case rather than in a free forum like here. Seek 2nd or 3rd immigration lawyers opinion as well. I'm sure money is not a problem for you.
