Can a Canadian man marry a girl with a criminal record in Hong Kong and get her into Canada as a Canadian citizen?
There is many steps to take for her to come to Cananda. Its going to be hard for her to leave the country depending on how serious her criminal records are. You may be able to get her into Canada as your spouse, if her criminal record is not too serious, but that will not make her a Canadian citizen. That is a completely different process which requires at least three years residence in Canada.

The person with the criminal record can get married to the American citizen, BUT they will NOT be granted residence in the USA. The same applies to Americans who have a criminal record, they are BARRED from entering Canada. We don't like to swap criminals. The only alternative, and it takes a while,… is to apply for a PARDON from the Canadian Government, if the conviction took place more than FIVE years ago. The application takes about 6 months to be approved and they will do a VERY deep check on the person's life and honesty, before it is granted. The application requires a cash fee, and a finger print set done by the RCMP. (MORE)
If a Canadian woman is married to an American man with a criminal record is it possible to get him to come to Canada?
Probably not. Consult with an immigration attorney, but Canada is really picky about not allowing immigrants with any criminal history at all.
My first suggestion would be to contact the state of Louisiana. Are you trying to become American citizens, or do you just want to get married in LA? Ask the state of LA all your questions, and have them direct you to where you need to go. Go to www.louisiana.com
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)
If a Canadian living in the U.S and married to an American has a child in Canada can the child be both an American and Canadian citizen?
Yes, they can and are. Canada will recognize the child naturally because they were born on Canadian soil, and to a Canadian parent. The child will also inherit the US Citizenship of the American Parent, although the Parent will have to declare the child to the U.S. Consulate showing their proof of c…itizenship as well as the child's Canadian birth certificate.

Can you marry a Canadian citizen who lives in the U.S. at the Canadian embassy and how fast can you obtain the permanent resident visa to Canada?
Answer \n. \nI do not know if you can marry someone at the Canadian embassy. I doubt it. Why would you want to? Why would you need to? A marriage that is legally performed anywhere in the United States is considered a legal marriage by the Canadian government and courts. Therefore, there is no re…ason to marry at the embassy. For information on how you get permanent resident status, you should consult the website of Citizenship and Immigration Canada: www.cic.gc.ca/english/\n. \nUnless of course if you are gay and lesbian and live somewhere in the US other than Massachusetts....

Answer . Yes, but they have to apply for and receive US immigration permission .. Answer . Do not work until you have your Employment Authorization Card. You can get one by filing the I-765, which you should have filed in the package for the Adjustment of Status based on marriage to a US citi…zen. (MORE)
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
The best way to find a Canadian girl to marry in Canada is to lookin the places where single girls are likely to be. Some places tocheck would be bars, dance clubs, and social events in the areawhere you live or would like to live.
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.
I am a US citizen who wants to marry a Canadian man im in Canada now how can you do this without being separated?
Canadian marriage so you are looking for Canadian citizenship,,,,,I am free to marry but will cost $50,000 can.
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)
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)
Only if you apply to become a Canadian citizen. Once you get residency in Canada you can apply for provincial healthcare.
Marrying a Canadian citizenship does not automatically make you a Canadian citizen. You would still have to go through the entire process that an unmarried "Alien" would have to go through. That is, apply and obtain Permanent Residency (PR) and then go through the Citizenship Application.. Ref: htt…p://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/faq/citizenship/cit-become-faq03.asp (MORE)
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. Another answer: google …out Hook a canuck, its a site for finding Canadian husbands. They should be able to help you. (MORE)
Yes. A Canadian citizen can obtain a passport with a criminal record. However, if it is child molestation, they have to inform the authorities if they leave the countries and increasingly, passports are being bar-coded so the authorities would know anyway.
Yes, You have to go through a tough process but yes a Canadian can become a Citizen by marrying an American.
if im from austria and want to marry my Canadian girl friend how long will it take me to get my citizenship
You have the right to enter Canada if you are a Canadian citizen. The passport should prove your identification, and the citizenship card should prove your citizenship - my guess is a strong yes.
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)
One of Canada's first battles which didn't last long was when they fought in Hong Kong. This battle was right after the attack on Pear Harbor and Canada declared war on Japan. It was the first battle that Canada was apart of in WWII. This Battle lasted for a total of 17 days then they were forced t…o surrender. About 500 Canadian soldiers were wounded, 290 killed, and those who were captured were sent to Prisoner of War camps; a total of 267 died in POW camps. (MORE)
Attack Hong Kong? No, Canadian troops were there to DEFEND Hong Kong against a Japanese invasion in WW2. However, Hong Kong fell anyway, and those Canadians troops who didn't die were captured as POWs till 1945.
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
What are the processes when you are a Tajik citizen but married to a Canadian and you are planning to have your first child in Canada?

Can a Canadian citizen who has committed a criminal offense in Canada be extradited from Costa Rica?
absolutely. Costa Rica has extradition treaties and agreements with most countries. There may be some loopholes but not many. (For example if the person facing extradition could be subject to the Death Penalty (not legal in Costa Rica) However in Canada there is no death penalty so that w…ould not apply. (MORE)
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. (MORE)
YES - You are a refugee. That is a criminal offense by Canadian Laws. (this happens to many people especially in foreign countries). It seems like now a days people overseas believe or at-least think, that once you marry a Canadian Citizen you automatically gain access to Canada and Citizenship to l…ive here. It does not work like that. Please read the information on the site at the Related Links carefully. Let me try to break it down for you a simple as possible. 1. If you are coming from another country and entering Canada (when not a Canadian Citizen and/or born in Canada) you will need a Travel Visa. Travel Visas last for 6 months which allows you to reside in Canada for 6MONTHS ONLY and are only allowed to be used ONCE. (If you leave Canada and return you will have to RE-APPLY for it again.). You CANNOT WORK, go to SCHOOL or visit a DOCTOR using a Travel Visa. If you would like to gain PERMANENT RESIDENCE , you will have to apply for a PR-Card ( Permanent Residency Card ) which will grant you permanent living in Canada. Please be advised that you need to be accepted and have a clear background history and have an ELIGIBLE reasoning in why you are coming here (Ontario, Canada) to live. (Marriage/Family/Work/Schooling) are common reasons, but don't automatically gain you success/entry. 2. If marriage and/or Family is the reasoning your spouse living in (Ontario, Canada) would have to send invitation, and show documentation including; PROOF of Marriage license, Income status, residency and background check information in order to even have approval . When all is completed and you are granted access you will be sent a card which allows you to enter/leave to and from/live in Canada permanently. ( please be advised that this whole process doesn't take a week nor a month, where in some cases may take as much as 90 business days ) 3.Once living here for at least 2 years you will then need to apply for a SIN Card (Social Insurance Number). Which EVERY citizen in Canada requires in order to work in Canada. Whether its a simple McDonalds or Tim Horton's Job. Once again you will need the necessary documentations to have approval. Once you receive a SIN Card you are eligible to work in all of Canada. 4. A new law that passed a few years ago is : when leaving and entering Canada, every citizen who's birthplace was outside of Canada MUST obtain a Canadian Citizenship Card. In order to be eligible you MUST have been living here in Canada for at least 3years, know English or French as your official language, as well as knowing the basic facts about Canada and its Geographics (Which a test is given!). Once you pass your test and you are approved, the Gov' of Canada will ship you, your Citizenship Card. *Recently a new law passed that even those (Canadians/Citizens) crossing from Canada over to the US through Boarder/Boating/Cruise ship/Bus/Train REQUIRE proof of residency & citizenship in order to go through customs and return to Canada. Even if your birthplace is Canada/and or the US!!!* 5. Please be advised that living in Ontario, Canada without a OHIP card (Ontario Health Insurance Plan) is not recommended. OHIP Cards are usually offered once you have been working and living here permanently (for more than 153Days) . OHIP covers, your doctor visits, diagnostic services, treatment for illnesses and injuries as-well as hospital care. OHIP DOES NOT cover ( prescription drugs, dental care, eye care/eye glasses or COSMETIC SURGERY ) in which insurance covers (if offered at your workplace). If insurance does not cover, you pay the full estimate price . For example some Dental offices charge up to $300-$500 for a full cleaning and scaling without insurance. With insurance you are paying less than half or sometimes even nothing. 6. Lastly if you are planning on attending school, College/University to be exact you will be considered a INTERNATIONAL STUDENT which likely you are paying anywhere from double to triple the amount of an Domestic Student (*Student who's birth place was Canada and attended school in Canada all their life*). In some cases you may be able to apply for bursaries and student loans to help with your fees. *Sorry If I scared you or made you feel stressed out but I tried my best to give you the rundown on as much information as possible on every little thing to do with Residency of Canada, Living in Canada and working/schooling in Canada* (MORE)

The child is entitled to both nationalities. Contact the nearest US embassy or consulate general and apply for a certificate of registration of birth abroad.

Any Canadian who is not actually in jail is free to travel anywhere he or she likes within Canada. A criminal record does not prevent you from travelling to another province.
Canadians with narcotics criminal records don't get pardons to enter the USA - they get US Entry Waivers, which are good for 1-5 years. No matter where the crime was committed, you have to apply for a waiver with the Department of Homeland Security, a US body.

The man lives in Canada the woman lives in Michigan They got married and divorced in Michigan Can she still collect alimony even though the man is a Canadian citizen?
Because each countries' laws are different i would advise you to contact an attorney at laws, maybe a Canadian one also. thanks.
In a word No. If born here absolutely not. However, should one lie on their application for Citizenship, and a Judge determines that they did, then the application is fraudulent . Thus any Citizenship from that application is null and void and does not exist, ergo you can be deported. (But yo…u are not a Citizen at this point) (MORE)
Can a Canadian citizen with a US green card can back into the US after committed a assault criminal record in Canada?
The police and intelligence service of USA, Canada, the UK, New Zealand and Australia are linked together and share the same data base. If the crime was serious enough that your record is put up electronically in their system, then you'll have problems.
found this little bit of data on the subject... In summary, the laying of criminal charges against a member of the House of Commons or Senate carries no immediate legal implication. Even if a member is convicted, he or she can continue to sit, unless sentenced to a term of imprisonment of two years… or more. Nonetheless, the House and the Senate retain the power to expel their members who are facing criminal charges or are convicted but not sentenced to a term of imprisonment of two years or more. However, this power is rarely used and certain provisions of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms might protect parliamentarians in such circumstances. (MORE)

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 depends on the crime and whether you have cleaned up your act since then.

However, they require you to have no outstanding issues with the legal system. In other words, if y…ou are currently in trouble, you won't be considered. Family court issues, pending criminal charges, unpaid fines, probation and parole issues will all be taken into consideration. (MORE)

A misdemeanor in an American court should not be a bother, as long as you are not on probation for it. A common infraction would be if you were a minor in the jurisdiction of the court putting it on your record. If you had a felony, then I would surely be concerned.
No, they cannot. The Canadian spouse must sponsor the immigration. After living 3 years out of the past four years in Canada, then they can apply for Canadian citizenship.
