%DETAILS% No, an alien or immigrant, legal or otherwise, does not become a citizen automatically upon marriage to a citizen. There is a process of applying, processing and (ho…pefully) eventual approval by the Federal government. First is Permanent Residency status ("Green card"). Then there's a wait of 3 years or more - depending on situation - for citizenship qualification. The website for the agency which handles this process is: USCIS.GOV Current illegal status may add some complications which I don't know about; it may be wise to consult an immigration attorney - a lawyer who specializes in immigration issues. There are lots of other web sites which give more information as well. An illegal alien does not automatically become a citizen by marrying one. However, certain illegal aliens can get permanent residence status (often called the "green card") by marrying a US citizen. If the person originally entered the United States legally but overstayed his or her visa, than it is possible for him or her to "adjust status" to that of a permanent resident (i.e. get a "green card") if the US citizen fills out a series of petitions including one that proves that the US citizen can financially support the alien. If the alien is illegal because he or she snuck into the United States without any visa or permit, than that person cannot "adjust status" and has to leave the country before obtaining a green card. If the person was illegally in the country for more than a year, than he or she is barred from ever coming back for 10 years (known as the "10-year-bar") The only way to overcome having the 10-year-bar is by the US citizen spouse filing a petition for a waiver of the bar. The petition has to prove that it would cause extreme and exceptional hardship to him or her to move to his or her spouse's country. Only three years after the person has the green card can they apply for citizenship, and they must still be married to the original citizen who got the green card. If you are convinced that he is "the one," than you should seriously consider marrying him. Once you are married you can start the process by filing the I-130. once it is approved, he will have to go back to Mexico for an interview to get his visa at the American consulate in Ciudad Juarez. He will be denied the visa because he was illegaly present in the US for over a year. At that time, he will be instructed to file the I-601. You will have to present evidence proving that you could not live in Mexico. This would include evidence of medical problems you may have, financial obligations in the US, familial obligations (i.e. caring for aging parents or disabled relatives.) and anything else that would make it impossible for you to move to Mexico. You have to prove that the hardship would be ABOVE and BEYOND the hardship that could be obviously expected. This means that the fact that you love him and "can't live without him" would not mean SQUAT to the case. The good news is that 90% of I-601s that are filed at Ciudad Juarez are approved. If you are serious about your boyfriend and plan to marry him and go through the long process of getting him his greencard, than you might want to talk to an immigration lawyer about your options. You should also pop into immigrate2us.net. Post under the I-601 section in the "waivers" category.
yes, if they have a state issued ID, a birth certificate, and they money for the license. or you can just use your Country's identification, such as 'matricula', visa, pas…sport, anything with your name and information. A birth certificate would also work. good luck!
Your best option would be to leave the country, apply for a marriage visa, re-enter legally on the marriage visa and then get married.
Answer . Yes, they can, but there are alot of legalities involved with "legalising" the person in question. It used to be a quick way to citizenship, but two of my friends… went through this in about 2001 (her: American from Detroit, MI, him: Canadian, from Windsor, ON) and they gave both of them a whole lot of trouble. It should be easier with time, however.\n. \n . \n In the U.S. unlawfully present foreign nationals are allowed to marry a citizen or other non citizen, if they have the documentation required by the state in which they wish to marry. \n. \nBecause of the changes in national security regulations an "undocumented foreign national of illegal status" would not be able to enter into a legal marriage to a U.S. citizen, as they would have to supply a photo ID, a birth certificate, and a Social Security card (not just a SS#).
Answer . \nif u married an illegal alien u dont have a status so to speak, but u need to get him a green card, or he will get deported and whoever is married to him will h…ave 15 yrs to life in jail for housing illegal aliens
Answer . This issue is a "Catch-22" in that there are not laws prohibiting a illegal foreign national from marrying a U.S. citizen. However, the person must have the requir…ed documentation when applying for the marriage license. In most states this means a photo ID, such as a valid driver license, passport, and so forth and proof of a valid SS number, preferably a SS card. \n. \nIt seems to be a common myth that marrying a U.S. citizen confers citizenship or permanent resident status, it does not. It does, however, change the filing procedure and the priority status. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, http://www.uscis.gov
Yes you can- but remember that the ability to marry an illegal is SEPARATE from whether or not that illegal will ultimately be able to get legal status due to that marriage.
You can marry a person who is here illegally anytime in every state. At this time there are no laws forbidding one to marry someone like that.
yes! in fact, it makes them both legal!
It is impossible for an illegal immigrant to marry a US citizen unless they have legal documentation-like their birth certificate (see the other answer to this question, on …this site too)
British citizens who are in Chicago get married the same way ascitizens. They need to go to the courthouse or religious figure andattain their marriage license. They will need… to have valid IDs.
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 mo…nths this must be done in brazil. via the embassy. once the residency papers have been complteted and you have them, your partner 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!!!
Contact an immigration lawyer.
If an American citizen marries a Brazilian citizen in Brazil does that person become a Brazilian citizen?
No, not unless you start the paperwork in Brazil. You would have to give up your US citizenship to become a citizen of Brazil. Your new spouse doesn't become a US citizen eith…er through marriage and they would have to apply for citizenship here too. Only being born in the US makes a person an automatic citizen.
The exact type of penalty for such crime is not being defined yet; but all of them are heavy.
