If two non-citizens marry will that affect applying for citizenship for one of them or both?
That issue depends on the state you marry in, but generally a marriage is a legal union preceded by a state-recognized officiate, which means that you cannot gain citizenship by marrying another non-citizen. However, you may still qualify for naturalization if you are a legal alien.

It depends on a lot of things. If the US citizen has past convictions, that doesn't matter. If the alien has past convictions, that can make a big difference, however. Nobody becomes eligible for citizenship by getting married. They do become eligible for a greencard. That does not mean that they'll… actually get the greencard, though. The citizen spouse has to sponsor the alien. The process is long and costly. Once the alien gets the greencard, s/he can apply for citizenship after three years, but it is not a guarantee that s/he will get it. no it cant.you are your own person his conviction are not about you good luck Ih the petitioner with the convictions has served his time and has been cleared from all his dues, then he is still eligible for petitioning somebody. But there is a big chance that the immigration officer will ask a lot of questions and will be most likely put on Admisnitrative Review. If the petitioner has minor convictions, the chances of petitioning somebody is higher but if the petitioner had major convictions like spousal abuse, murder, etc, it would be a really really hard rocess. He will definitely need a lawyer. (MORE)

If you are an American citizen and both your parents were born in Romania but do not have Romanian citizenship can you get Romanian citizenship?
If your parents were born in Romania, they are quite likely Romanian (or were) at time of birth. First step is for at least one of them to go to a Romanian embassy/consulate and fill out a form requesting their birth certificate(s). Next step is for them to fill out a clarification form whereby they… seek to clarify whether they had Romanian citizenship, and if so, did they ever lose it. If a determination is made that they did not lose their Romanian citizenship, then you have a birthright to Romanian citizenship. If they had, and subsequesntly lost, Romanian citizenship, then they (and you and your children) have the right to regain Romanian citizenship (in this case knowledge of the Romanian citizenship is a requirement).. Hope that helps. (MORE)
