No, she will not lose her nationality. Chances are she may also get foreign national's country citizenship too. However, marrying a foreigner does not have chances of losing nationality.

\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nMany people do this, but the illegal alien is taking advantage by asking either a man or woman to marry them so they can stay in that particular… country. Yes, you could get into trouble, and if you don't get into trouble with your government, the person who is an illegal alien can cause you trouble. Marriage is marriage and you may have a tough time getting out of it. Don't do it! Let this person get into the U.S. the right way ... through immigration!\n. \n . \n Marrying in an attempt to attain permanent residency or ciritzenship status is in violation of federal law. \n. \nIf convicted of fraudulent marriage either or both participants can be incarcerated in a federal facility for a maximum of 5 years with a maximum $200,00 fine. \n. \nThe marriage will be declared invalid and the foreign national will be deported after serving the imposed sentence and permanently barred from applying for reentry. The US citizen will have a permanent criminal record of having committed a federal felony.\n. \nIn addition, marrying a US citizen no longer guarantees the foreign national will be granted US citizenship.
How can an illegal foreign national who is pregnant and married to an American citizen become legally documented?
The female was "unlawfully present" in the U.S. when she was married thereby likely disqualifying her as being eligible for permanent residence status even though she is marri…ed to a citizen. Foreign nationals who are found to have been living illegally in the U.S. for more than 12 months are subject to deportation and barred from applying for entrance for 10 years. The issue of her being pregnant might possibly help in waiving deportation and other penalties but that is not a certainty. The marriage of a foreign national to a U.S. citizen does not guarantee permanent residence status or citizenship as some believe, it simply changes the status and priority given to the applicant. It would be strongly advisable to obtain legal counsel from an attorney qualified in immigration issues as soon as possible.
When a U.S. citizen marries an illegal foreign national does he or she have to return to their country before applying for a Greencard and if so for how long?
Answer . No. You apply in the US. The only issue is whether he has to return to India for permission from his country. But I believe that's handled through his consulate (…most major cities have a consulate for India).\n. \n. \n . \n The foreign national spouse will be required to voluntarily leave the U.S. or be officially deported. Immigration laws no longer allow a citizen spouse to apply for permanent resident status of a spouse who was unlawfully present at the time of the marriage. There are a few exceptions to the law, such as a person who qualifies as a refugee or asylee.\n. \nBecause the person entered the U.S. illegally they will not be able to apply for reentry for at least one year or if they have been in the U.S. for more than a year the time becomes 10 years, with exceptions made based on the merit of individual cases.\n. \nUnited States Citizenship and Immigration Services, http://www.uscis.gov
If a foreign national marries a U.S. citizen while they're in the country on a vistor's visa will they have to leave the country and apply for reentry.?

Immigration laws are changing on almost a daily basis, therefore the best option is to consult an attorney knowledgeable in immigration laws. \n. \nMore information can be obtained at the website of the, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, http://www.http.uscis.gov
If a 16-year-old US citizen marries a foreign national how could she obtain permission for her husband to enter the US?
\n. \n Answer \n. \nA minor in the US needs parental permission to marry.\n. \n. \nEven if the parents of the minor allowed her to marry and she would then be consider…ed emancipated it is unlikely she would be able to apply for a spousal visa for her husband until she is of legal age.\n. \nIf the minor marries outside the US the marriage would be legal. \n. \nA minor cannot legally leave the US without parental permission and in most cases being accompanied by an adult.\n. \nA minor who left the US by illegal means and married in a foreign country would not be considered legally married in the US.
\n. \n Answer \n. \nYes.\n. \nThe foreign national would not yet be eligible to apply for permanent residency therefore divorcing his or her current spouse and remarry…ing would not affect his or her status.\n. \nBe advised, that it may create difficulty when the application for permanent residency is made.
What should a US citizen do when they discover that their foreign national spouse married them for the purpose of obtaining residency or citizenship?

Answer . \nYes, it is a federal felony.\n. \nIf convicted both participants and anyone who aided them in the act could face a maximum of 5 years in a federal prison and a… maximuim $250,000 fine.\n. \nAfter serving the imposed sentence the foreign national would be permanently deported and the US citizen would have a permanent criminal record.

Any alien who is marrying a US citizen can enter using the spouse visa K-3 if marriage is outside US or K-1 fiance(e) visa if marriage is in US. Once the wedding is over the a…lien spouse is given the conditional status valid for 2 years which can be upgraded to permanent resident status(green card holder) 90 days before its validity ends. As a green card holder if the alien spouse continues to be married and stays with the US citizen spouse he/she can apply for US citizenship after three years as a green card holder provided he/she meets all requirements and is eligible.

If a US citizen has a child with a non-resident foreign national but they do not marry how can the foreign national become a legal US resident so that he can work in the US and help raise the child?
You should consult an immigration lawyer. In my opinion, the best solution is that you should marry the foreigner, even though you don't want to, in order to sponsor him to mo…ve to the US.. But also
No. But only if the person already has US permanent residency.
After a petition is filed and accepted. Yes.
