If you are talking about getting married in Canada, then no paperwork is needed. In the US a fiancee's visa, which takes four months to get, is required. Answer nope.. you can get married but you won't be able to work. I AM LEGALLY married to an American man and i am Canadian. I got married to hi…m on a visit last fall... right now, however we are living apart dealing with some of our own issues as to where to live. You can be married but you may not be able to work. As a Canadian you can visit up to 181 days without losing your medical plan back in Canada. Think about all the old ladies that live in Canada during the summer, and Florida in the winter....... they can visit, they just can't work legally. (MORE)
It depends on if he is entering as a spouse or fiance. If you marry in Canada, he will have to reside in Canada until he can get a visa, which I have been told by Immigration is two to three years. If he entered as a fiance, then about 8 months after you get married, or longer. The actual length of …time depends on how backlogged the immigration process is at the time you apply. (MORE)
Answer . Yes, but they have to apply for and receive US immigration permission .. Answer . Do not work until you have your Employment Authorization Card.

Answer . \nYes you can, but you will have to go to Imigration for instructions as to what papers you need, etc. It's a little tougher since 9/11, but I know lots of Americans that are living in British Columbia. \\n. \nGood luck\nMarcy

Becoming a US Citizen . Be sure you have looked into the American Government system before you make any long term plans. It is falling apart. Also the health care system here is pathetic. How can I become a Canadian citizen?. haha the previous poster is right .. America isn't what it used to be …(thanks to our current "leaders"). That said, it is very difficult to become an American citizen. Unless you have immediate family who are American citizens, or are a highly skilled/college educated person, it can be next to and including, impossible. Good luck! . No editorializing on this one. . Just as any other immigrant to the United States, a Canadian can take out American citizenship after living in the U.S. without a criminal record for five years and passing a test in American civics and history.. Recently Pam Anderson did, so the U.S. is not really all that picky. (Oops, I forgot about the no editorializing!). Also, as a Canadian, I'd like to say that you are welcome to move into my basement. We'll see what happens in November, but 4 more years of a Republican executive might mean that I need to buy a bigger house ;-) (MORE)
Answer . Yes, they can marry where ever they wish. However, there are immigration laws that regulate if the Canadian can leave the US after their marriage. Re-Entry visa MUST be obtained BEFORE leaving the US by the Canadian until Resisdency is established.
Answer . \nIn the appropriate court in the state or province where they now reside.
Yes, you can request child support from a Canadian citizen if youlive in the United States. You will have to have proof of paternityor have a birth certificate that has the Canadian citizens name onit.
Answer . \nMaybe, whether or not diversity jurisdiction applies is determined by the facts of the case in question.\n. \nAny civil case between a US citizen and a citizen of another country can be filed in a US Federal Court if the suit is for $10,000 or more.\n. \nThe state in which the US de…fendant lives usually determines which federal court will have jurisdiction.

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 country where the non-citizen will live. Another Answer That would depend upon the laws and customs of the place in which you int…end to get married. (MORE)
You can start the process by first going to www.uscis.gov and read up on the section dealing with K1 Visa (fiance(e) visa). You will need to file an I-129F form, as well as send in a LOT of paperwork showing that both of you are willing to enter into the marriage, as well as both of you are able to …marry. (You will also need to send in any pictures of both you and your fiance(e), as well as statements from yourself and your fiance(e) ... all of which are listed in the form you need to fill out.) Once all those forms, as well as the fee, are completed and sent it, you will receive a letter stating that they have received it and will begin the process when they can. After USCIS has approved the petition, you will get another letter telling you which office will be handling your petition (or case... however you wish to look at it). Your fiance(e) will need to send information to the US Consulate or Embassy in Perth or Sydney (whichever is closer) in a certain amount of time. Once that is done, they will receive word about when an interview will take place and you should hear something back shortly after that.. I wish you the best of luck! (MORE)
Answer . Yes. You will need to meet the requirements of the state you wish to marry in (get a license, have the proper I.D., for example). A marriage that is valid and legal in the United States is considered valid and legal by the Canadian governmet and courts.
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 you should do BEFORE you arrive in Canada. Being married to a Canadian citizen would probably be a big advantage. Getting Canad…ian 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. (MORE)
Yes. I married my wife, a Mexican citizen, in the US while living with her family in Mexico. She had a B1-B2 visa so she could legally enter the US. We returned to Mexico to live. It took 4 hrs including crossing the border. For us to get PERMISSION to marry in Mexico would have taken months.
yes i think they should be cuz they will have the name on record and i also think they chould be if they have kids in the US too
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 might influence the non-citizen's ability to apply for citizenship in the country where you will reside.

If you are a foreigner marrying a US citizen, then no you are not a US citizen. Marriage to a citizen does normally give you "permanent resident" status for the duration of the union, and qualifies you for certain paths to citizenship, but it's not automatically granted.
No. They still have to apply for citizenship through the immigration office. Even if they are married the application can be denied.
If a US citizen divorces a Canadian citizen (who is in US legally) and they have a minor child who has dual citizenship can the US Citizen who is the dad file to state that mom (Canadian)cannot take minor child out of the Arizona (the state they currently reside in) for no longer than 30 days for va…cation purpose?

Hello, I did just that! When you marry a Brazilian you must either do one of two things:. 1.st Apply for permentent residence status for your partner and that can take 6-8 months this must be done in brazil. via the embassy. once the residency papers have been complteted and you have them, your par…tner is now free to come and go in and out of canada.. 2. Apply for holiday visa upon arriving in canada, proceed to apply for the permenant residency in Canada. ( will take 6-8 months ) note do not tell the immigration officials that you are going to apply for residency as they will make you do it in Brazil. as well while applying if it takes more than 6 months and your tourist visa runs out, you will need to get it extended!. To understand the immigration process can sometimes be quite confusing, so unless you are used to reading and understanding legal and government forms, it's probabaly easier and wiser to look into a good immigration lawyer right here in Canada, who understands the legal process.. It's worth it!!! (MORE)
The law in America is if your spouse is an American citizen and you have a legal wedding/cerimony the other if not already becomes an American citizen. In Canada the law could be different so check their laws. -Pokitaru
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 and 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... (MORE)
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 marriage. 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, they may then apply for US citizenship. - The period of time is 3 years, assuming you stay married to your US citizen spouse…. (MORE)
The answer is no. You still have to apply for Canadian Citizenship. The process does take a while. My friend who married a Canadian in Canada had to wait a year to officially live there. . \nNo.
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 a…ny problems.. _____________________________________________________________________. yes, even if you werent canadian.

No. When you are born an American you are always an American unless you decide to take the citizenship of another country.
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.

What happens if an American citizen marries Canadian citizen in Canada and the Canadian is bankrupt what happens with sponsorship and visas and such?
Any questions you have you should refer them to the Canada CIC. It is not impossible for the Canadian to sponsor you if he/she filed for bankruptcy but it does make it more difficult. Mainly they have to be able to AFFORD to take care of you once youre in Canada. But refer to the CIC. Google it. Can…ada CIC for all info. Good luck (MORE)
No, the Canadian has to be married to the American in order to live or work in America. Because you have to be married to an American to get a green card in order to do that.
Yes. Tens of thousands do so: almost all have work permits or student visas. A fraction of Canadian workers here are illegal aliens who overstayed visas.
Maybe it depends you could become a U.S but yes of course you can cross the border after marrying a U.S citizen but you will eventually if you live there have to become a U.S citizen
It is not possible to become a Canadian Citizen just by marrying a Canadian citizen. Citizenship cannot be acquired by marriage in any country.

It doesn't bar you from becoming a US citizen, but it doesn't automatically make you one either. You still have to go through a citizenship process, though the one for spouses of citizens is a little more streamlined.
I can state definitely that Americans can become Canadian citizens; I myself was an American, born in New York, and I am now a Canadian citizen. This does not, of course, mean that every American can become a Canadian citizen. Canada, like any other country, has specific citizenship requirements, …and immigration requirements. Not everybody qualifies. But some do. (MORE)
I'm not 100% certain of what I'm about to say. I don't think being married to a U.S. citizen by itself has any effect on how long you can stay in the U.S. You must apply to the Immigration Service for a change in status. I think this normally takes three steps with the first being an applicati…on made by your citizen spouse. (MORE)
No. Non-US citizens can marry US citizens. This does not automatically make them US citizens as well, though it does generally grant them permanent resident status ("permanent" as long as they stay married, anyway).
