What are the legal requirements to marry a US citizen for a foreign person in the US on a visa permit?
Marriage requirements are the same for all people. Immigration status has no bearing on your right to marry. As long as you are not currently married and are over 18 years old…, you should be able to obtain a marriage license. If you are not in the United States and you want to come to marry an American, than you will need to apply for a fiancee visa. Note however, that if you want to apply for a green card through marriage in the U.S. after the wedding, you shouldn't be on a visitors visa, since otherwise you will have to prove that you did not enter the U.S. with an intent to get married.
If you came to the US legally but overstayed your visa by 7 years is there anyway to become legal again?
Very unlikely. A friend of mine is going through deportation process right now. He came here on a visa which expired years ago. He was in the process of being deported, and go…t married to a U.S. citizen. The court has ruled so far that he is not entitled to stay because the U.S. citizen was well aware of his situation. Basically, he must return to his home country (Russia) and apply to return. His lawyer is telling him that this could take years.

Overstay based on marriage to a US citizen is forgiven at the AOS interview. This could apply to your situation, as well.

\n. \nThe question is a bit perplexing as generally it would not be possible for a foreign national to become a legal resident if he or she violated an entry visa, although t…here exceptions made depending upon individual circumstances.\n. \nBecause of the stricter immigration laws and the aggressive enforcement of such, foreign nationals who are found to be unlawfully present in the US are subject to deportation unless they qualify under refugee or asylee status.\n. \nForeign nationals who have been unlawfully present in the US for 12 months or less can be deported and barred from applying for legal reentry for 3 years. Those who have been unlawfully present in the US for more than 12 months can be deported and barred from applying for legal reentry for 10 years.

The law says that you will be barred for a maximum of 10 years. There is a waiver that you could file for and depending on the mood of the immigrations officer they will appro…ve or deny. The waivers are expensive. If you left willingly after the four years and were not deported? You may be able to enter again with no problem. My fiancee over stayed twice was removed the third time and sent back. The forth time he passed with no problem. So its hit or miss with those guys..

How can someone who entered the US as a minor with a tourist visa and overstayed by 15 years with a SSN but no home country id marry a US citizen?
Just get married! . Just go get married. Your alien status has nothing to do with getting married. Normalizing your status after marriage is another matter though. You s…hould still be able to change your illegal alien status to that of legal resident by way of marriage to a citizen, but the process will be complicated both by your past crime and your lack of documentation.

After marriage can I visit my home country to see my parents? if I get any law problems? after marriage if any other reason we separate what rules can apply? please help me
It's not actually illegal, though it may look a bit suspicious, and marriage does not automatically confer upon your non-citizen spouse the right to remain in the country... y…ou'll need to file a petition for permanent resident status for them, or they'll have to leave when their tourist visa expires. The best thing to do would be to contact Immigration Services immediately when you decide you want to get married, because the last thing you want is to give them some reason to believe you are attempting to circumvent immigration law. Contacting them prior to the wedding will help establish your good faith intent to follow the proper procedures. If your future spouse is not in the country yet, the best thing to do would be to apply for a fiancee visa, which allows someone to enter the country for up to 90 days for the express purpose of getting married.

You will be under a ban on re entering the US for 3 years. After that you can enter through the marriage visa.
