Can a company sponsor you and provide your green card if you have been out of status in the US would they forgive you as they do when you marry a citizen?
im sorry, but that question does not make sense, they do not "forgive" anything if you marry a citizen, no matter how the citizen abtained citizenship. I am a American citizen, and I am white, I was born in Washington state. I married a Mexican immigrant, we have been together for 7 years, and we have a child that was also born in Washington state, However, they will not let my husband live in the U.S. even though he is not a criminal, and our child and myself are totaly dependant on his income, and I am disabled and cannot care for my son and myself without him. This is a common misconception among Americans-that if an illegal immigrant gets married to a citizen, they have a right to become a citizen- However, it is just not true.

What would the punishment be for a US citizen who marries a non-citizen to enable them to qualify for a green card and US citizenship if found out?
Answer Jail time, probation, fines, or all three. 18 USC 1015states: Whoever knowingly makes any false statement under oath, inany case, proceeding, or matter relating to, or …under, or by virtueof any law of the United States relating to naturalization,citizenship, or registry of aliens.... Shall be fined under thistitle or imprisoned not more than five years, or both. Subsection(f) does not apply to an alien if each natural parent of the alien(or, in the case of an adopted alien, each adoptive parent of thealien) is or was a citizen (whether by birth or naturalization),the alien permanently resided in the United States prior toattaining the age of 16, and the alien reasonably believed at thetime of making the false statement or claim that he or she was acitizen of the United States. However, it is not necessary to make a false claim to marry anon-citizen and help them qualify for a green card. If you arecareful and not too cooperative with those in government, you tendto fare better. Do not make a false statement intentionally and thenon-citizen you marry can legally qualify for a green card. Manypeople marry for different reasons and the reason you state, ifany, can be both honest and help your spouse to qualify for a greencard. There is no reason to lie to accomplish the goal you statebut you must consider how to field certain questions that may beasked, as any married couple in such a situation should.

They can stay here. When a green card holder marries a US citizen, he/she gets to share the benefits enjoyed by the US citizen. The US citizen can also file in for the green… card holder's citizenship application.

No, you wouldn't.
It's not that easy. You should consult with a good immigration attorney, or an immigration aid center. If you are already not legal, the ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcem…ent) takes a dim view of you all of a sudden wanting to marry an American. And there are waivers that will be needed - and they might not be granted. They'll also want to interview you and the prospective bride. And they'll have all kinds of questions that they'll ask you each seperately to see if you really know and love each other. It can be quite...intense. I wish you well. But seek aid from that attorney or immigration aid center.
Yes, there is no probem if the Indian has no criminal probems and all the documents are OK. But it does take time. Good luck
How long would it take a married couple who are not US citizens to get a green-card if a US citizen files for them?
If one is a resident alian harboring an illegal
Not nesseciarly, If your talking about a 'fake marraige' then aside from this being illegal and punished by 5 years in jail, there is no way for an illegal immigrant to adjust… status to lawful permanent resident (Green Card holder) for one very simple reason: he has no status to adjust FROM! So even if a 30-year-old marries an illegal immigrant, the immigrant will still be deported once caught. There is simply no other way than leaving the US, at which time a 10-year bar will be triggered. Ten years later, the US citizen spouse can file for an IR-1 visa, at which time also an I-601 waiver needs to be submitted for the overstay. Now, there's some good news, however! The US Government realizes that children have no say in where parents drag them. Therefore, illegal presence in the US is not recorded until the child becomes an adult and can do whatever they want. More to the point, you have exactly 180 days after your 18th birthday to "do the right thing" and leave the US on your own. Your fiance (who needs to be at least 18 and make $18K per year after taxes for the affidavit of support) can file an K-1 (fiance visa) for you. Once issued, you ENTER the US legally, get married within 90 days, and file for AOS ($1,010). Once approved, you'll get a 2-year Green Card. After 2 years, you both have to file for Removal of Conditions ($585) and once that's done, you'll get a 10-year Green Card. Sounds all very easy, but due to the requirements of the ROC, very few "fake" marriage survive the process.
