    I just filed a K1 petition and would like to know if I can still marry her in her home country, and when she arrives to the US if it will not be a problem to marry her again in the US, I understand I am bringing her in as a fiancée.

    First of all, if you marry her, she is not your fiance anymore, and does not qualify to enter the US on K-1.

    Second, you cannot "re-marry" her -- if you are married, anywhere in the world, you are married, period. You do not qualify to get married again because one of the qualifications for getting married in all states is that you are unmarried.
