You just get a marriage license and get married. Before doing so, however, you should learn how the marriage will influence your ability to apply for citizenship in the countr…y where the non-citizen will live. Another Answer That would depend upon the laws and customs of the place in which you intend to get married.
No . No. Assuming that there are no other legal impediments to your entering Canada, you could get into Canada. You could apply for permanent resident status - something yo…u should do BEFORE you arrive in Canada. Being married to a Canadian citizen would probably be a big advantage. Getting Canadian citizenship is a whole other process. Before you can apply, you have to have lived in Canada for three years without interruption or, in some cases, for three of the last four years. If you meet all of the requirements, THEN you can become a Canadian citizen. Being married to a Canadian will help with that. But marrying a Canadian will NOT automatically make you a Canadian citizen.
In Short: no.
The laws for obtaining a marriage license don't address citizenship. You just get married. However, you should first research immigration law to find out how the marriage migh…t influence the non-citizen's ability to apply for citizenship in the country where you will reside. Another answer: google out Hook a canuck, its a site for finding Canadian husbands. They should be able to help you.

No. They must apply for a greencard, or other form of immigration
The Application Process . The following is a general description of the application process: (No matter where you got married this will be applicable.). You get married a…nd get the marriage certificate. . Get the application forms relating to the "Immediate Relative Visa" (commonly called the green card). This application must be filled by the American spouse. This is an application for a temporary resident card which will be valid for a period of 24 months and will have to be renewed by the American spouse at the end of this period. The main form is the I-130 (Petition for Alien Relative) which will kick-start the whole process. . After having obtained and completed the numerous required forms and documents, send them, along with the filing fee -- about $185 (non-refundable if the application is rejected), to the USCIS or deliver it to the consulate of your country. . If you application is valid, you will received a "Notice of Approval", which will explain that you petition has been approved and that the process has started. Following this notice, you will receive a letter explaining which documents you will need for your future interview. Make sure you take care of this well in advance, as getting all the documents can take a long time. . You will then get an interview date as well as all the details to get your medical exams done. This will include getting all your common shots up to date for the American requirements and meeting with a doctor, following blood tests and lung X-rays. In France, there are only 3 or 4 consulate approved doctors (a list with their details will be included in the letter notifying you of the interview date). . Once you've passed your medical review, you will have an interview with an immigration officer and your paperwork will be reviewed. A few questions about your relationship to your new spouse will be asked (how and when you met, etc..). It is always a good idea to bring a couple pictures that can help prove your honesty at the interview. It probably will not be needed but it does feel reassuring. You will also need to have the proper mailing items, so that the embassy can return your passport to you with the new stamp on it. (In France this would require a 2 kg inflatable Chronopost envelope.) . If you everything goes well, your application will be approved by the officer. He will then keep your passport as well as some of your documents. . Several days later (usually within 5 working days) you will receive your passport, freshly stamped with your new visa, as well as a sealed envelope containing all the documents needed for your arrival at the customs in the USA. DO NOT OPEN this envelope. . That is it! Book your flight, pack your bags, and go...
Yes, but it would be inappropriate (i.e. visa fraud) to enter the U.S. under the VWP or tourist visa if your INTENT after marriage is to stay in the U.S. permanently after mar…riage. Entry should be made under a K-1 via.
No they do not automatically become a US Citizen. They would have to get a spouse's visa and then a marriage based Green Card. After the elapse of time - usually 5 years, th…ey may then apply for US citizenship. - The period of time is 3 years, assuming you stay married to your US citizen spouse.
he will stay American citizen....he has to apply to become a Canadian citizen or his wife has to apply for him and will have to tell the court that she has married him
Not automatically, no. Any foreign national CAN become a US citizen, but, request has to be made. In many cases, dual citizenship may be offered by the original nation, and …may or may not be considered by the US INS. Please make careful inquiry of BOTH the original nation and the US INS to avoid any problems.. _____________________________________________________________________. yes, even if you werent canadian.
Yes. When a non-citizen marries a U.S. citizen, s/he can then apply for US permanent residency. It is important to note that you cannot marry someone solely to obtain a green …card as that is considered fraud (though, for the most part, it is the government's burden to show fraud, not your burden to show it isn't). A Canadian citizen married to a US citizen should have a simple time getting the required permanent residency visa, though you still must fill out the proper immigration forms and follow the rules to the letter, as NOTHING is automatic.
