If someone is in the United States on a student visa how can he become a legal resident?
Having a student visa means that you are legally in the U.S. They could change their student visa to a working visa (H1. After that they can apply for a green card and later apply for citizenship. Getting a green card can take years. Only after getting a green card they will be able to apply for citizenship. The process can become much easier if that person gets married with an American citizen. Then, it will be a question of months.

Yes they can. However it takes about 5 years to do so. During this period the person with the student visa has to either maintain a student visa and stay in school or adjust t…heir visa if graduating for example. Usually sometime during this 5 year period the resident alien becomes a citizen and at that time the spouse holding the student visa can adjust to a permanent resident.
When a permanent resident with a valid green card marries a girl who is on a student visa what is the process for her to become a legal U.S. resident?
Answer . From what i understand the U.S. legal resident would first have to become a naturalized citizen and then he could begin the petition of asking for his wife. I do n…ot believe that a person w/ a green card, even if valid, can ask for an immigrant.. Answer . Actually, a permanent resident can file a petition for his or her spouse, but from what INS told me, it takes 2-3 years at best to get the petition approved. However, if the permanent resident became a naturalized citizen first, it would only take 6 months or so to get the same paperwork approved.\n>>short answer>>> get you citizenship first, then petition for her,.. it's faster>>

Answer . Any one, including a minor, enters US should have a visa. If a minor enters US without a visa and U.S. custom inspection & I-94 card, most likely, this minor enter…s US illegally.. If that is the case, it is very difficult for this illegal minor alien to become legal US Permanent Resident later, according to current US immigration law.. Even if after many years, this alien marries with a U.S. citizen, this alien is still not eligible to adjust his/her status to US permanent residence inside the U.S., because he/she entered U.S. illegally without U.S. custom inspection and I-94 card.
\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.
Answer . \nThe basic rule is, a foreign national who is unlawfully present in the US must return to their country of origin and apply for reentry under the established USC…IS regulations.\n. \nExceptions are made depending upon the individual's circumstances.\n. \nPlease visit the official USCIS website for specific information.\n. \nUnited States Citizenship and Immigration Services\n. \nhttp://www.uscis.gov
