Hi I've been looking at both the marriage and tax threads but I haven't spotted a post that answers my questions exactly.
If a Taiwanese and US citizen get married in taiwan first, is the marriage automatically accepted in the USA or is another marriage certificate or confirmation required?
If the US citizen is filed as a dependant under their parents in then does the marriage in Taiwan negate this status? Should they file taxes as married separate since the spouse is Taiwanese? I've heard that couples can choose to certify their marriage abroad in the US wherever they want. But would waiting to file it later be considered illegal for tax purposes or when applying for the spouse visa?
