Can a legal immigrant who is married to a US citizen but has not received Conditional permanent residence status divorce and marry another citizen?
No.. go home
No. There is no longer "automatic citizenship via marriage". You must apply for citizenship under the proscribed laws. You may however qualify for 2A Family Prefererence categ…ory, which shortens the time (a little).
I am adopted by two U.S. Citizens and lived in the U.S for 25 years and am a permanent resident but lost my card Can I marry a citizen and become a citizen automatically or at least quicker?
What card did you lose? Green card? If you were adopted by US citizens, you are already a US citizen, not merely a permanent resident. Getting married does nothing for improvi…ng your status. I'd go see an (immigration) attorney and order copies of your documentation. This shouldn't be too hard to get if you had them originally. Good luck.
Answer . No.. He or she must still apply for permanent resident status and then citizenship as required by US immigration laws.
How can 65 years old lady with permanent recident card who does notspeak English become a citizan
Since you don't say which country you're specifically interested in, it is impossible to get an accurate answer.\n. \nIn some countries, if you marry you will become a citize…n while in others, such as the USA, Canada or Australia for example, marriage does not automatically get you citizenship,\n. \nIf you're a legal resident, you will normally become eligible for citizenship after a certain period of time...the length of time being dependent on the country in which you are a legal resident...subject to meeting certain residency requirements (i.e. the amount of time physically spent in that country since becoming a legal resident) and normally a citizenship test of some sort.\n. \n. \n. \n. \nHelp me in the battle to conquer cancer.

No, it doesn't make them a citizen if they marry one. I am a German citizen with a permanent resident green card and married a solider. It didn't make me a US citizen like mos…t people would think. A person in this situation still has to wait for 5 years in Permanent Resident status and then apply for citizenship.
yes, with time and meeting some requirements. - It's not automatic. You have to wait three years, and then apply for naturalization through USCIS (the same agency that gave …you your green card). It involves paying some fairly expensive fees, passing an exam and having a background check.
yes as long as you are married
No, Only the residency requirement reduces from 5 years to 3 years.
No, not at all. If an illegal alien marries a U.S. citizen, the U.S. citizen is allowed in the U.S., there partner is not unless they do it the correct way and get a visa. If …the illegal alien stays in the U.S., they risk getting deported, especially since the U.S. is cracking down on Illegal Aliens entering the U.S now. In order to apply for U.S. Citizenship you need to: 1) Be a lawful permanent U.S. resident. 2) Be 18 years of age or older. 3) Be a permanent resident for no less than 5 years. 4) Have resided for no less than 3 months in the state where the petition to become a citizen was filed. 5) Be physically present in the U.S. for at least one half of the 5 years, with no absences longer than 6 months. 6) Have resided continuously within the U.S. from the date the petition was filed to the time of admission to citizenship. 7) Have been a person of good moral character for the 5 years of residence. 8) Have an Elementary level of reading and writing English. 9) Having a basic knowledge of the fundamentals of U.S. government and history.
No, but it does give you the ability to complete the naturalization process.
No. He or she is required to apply for permanent residence status according to US immigration laws.
my friend...i answered this question before...here goes.....are you trying to say that the resident alien becomes a u.s. citizen? if your answer to the question is yes then al…l that you have to do is go to your local or nearest immigration office and APPLY for citizenship. you need to pay, $600 i believe. after some time, after submitting your application, immigration will contact you, ask you a few questions in English about the united states, such as who was the first president, how many stars on the flag, who is your senator and a lot of mickey mouse questions. but not to worry, shortly after you apply and pay, you will be sent sample questions, so no big deal. when you take the oral exam, which takes about five minutes, the immigration official administering the exam will tell you that you passed. that you are now a u.s. citizen, but you will receive another letter after that telling you where to go and at what time where you will take the Oath of Allegiance. that is all, but remember, citizenship is not automatic, YOU NEED TO APPLY AND THEN WAIT FOR IMMIGRATION TO CONTACT YOU AND JUST DO WHAT THEY TELL YOU, and what they will tell you is what i just got thru outlining. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!
No, marriage to a US citizen only reduces the required residency period for permanent residents who wish to become US citizens.
You're asking, Can a US Citizen marry a US Permanent Resident!? What a funny question, but to be precise in my answer, YES! and YES, anyone can marry anyone as long as both th…e individuals are genuine, non-terrorists and non-criminal.
