    If a person's marriage has been annuled outside USA will it be a basis for him to be single again and therefore allowed to get married by the laws of USA?

    The person involved got married in the Philippines but got his annulment and plans to marry his girlfriend in the states.

    It depends. For example, if the person has a spouse or family in the U.S., skips over to the Philippines to obtain an annulment, and presents it for enforcement in a U.S. court, there's a strong possibility that the spouse would be able to successfully argue that the court should not respect the foreign order.

    If the person and the person's spouse have no contact with any nation other than the Philippines in relation to their marriage, marriage relationship and annulment, and the annulment is legal and valid under the laws of the Philippines, then there should be no problem with having it respected in the U.S.
