6-7 months you'll get a permanent visa, and then after 2 years you'll go through interviews and stuff and if they believe your marriage is for real you'll get a green card.
Just because you marry a legal citizen, it does not make you a leagal citizen. When I married my husband who was a legal alien he still had to go through the same channels to become a legal US citizen and he had to be sworn in.
Answer . \nFirst, give him/her the $2,000 then marry the citizen. LOL Just a little joke! Apply for Alien Resident Status at INS (about $400). You will need to get Finger Prints for Investigation in your Country and US, Health Report from Registered INS Doctor for check of Health problems. Then… just sit and wait for further instructions from INS. (MORE)
Answer . \nYes you can become a citizen but it is not automatic because you married a US citizen. You have one thing going for you - your green card.\n. \nYou have to file form N400 - Naturalization papers with the INS to become a citizen. It might take a while because since 9/11, the US has tig…htened the whole immigration process and that's good. \nSo, go to the INS home page, printoff the N400, read it carefully and thoroughly, and go from there. You might want to get some qualified help (Attorney, catholic charities, pro bono organizations for immigration, etc).\n. \nHope this helps. Answer . \nThank you for the help. i will have my girl try it out. her green cards expires in 2 years. (MORE)
How long does it take for a person who has a work permit to get a green card after getting married to a US citizen?
Answer . To get a provisional green card the time period would be about a year and a normal green card would be about three years.
A permanent resident can apply for citizenship after 3 years of marriage to a US citizen. You will need to fill out form N-400 ( Naturalization) which comes with a $330 (processing fee) and a $70 Biometric (finger print & background check). If you are applying based on 5 years as a Permanent Resi…dent or 3 years as a Permanent Resident married to a U.S. citizen, you may file for naturalization up to 90 days before you meet the continuous residence requirement. For example, if you are applying based on 3 years of continuous residence as a Permanent Resident married to a U.S. citizen, you can apply any time after you have been a Permanent Resident in continuous residence for 3 years minus 90 days. You may send your application before you have met the requirement for continuous residence only. Therefore, you must still have been married to and living with your U.S.citizen spouse for 3 years before you may file your application. You must also meet all the other eligibility requirements when you file your application with USCIS. Personal Experience I married my husband 13 years ago (I am a US Citizen). He has Permanent Resident status (born in Mexico). How long would it take for him to become a citizen? What forms does he need to fill out? (MORE)

It is very important that you send every document correct and flawless. Then, less than 6months is guaranteed. (MORE)
You start a relationship, and then the proposal of marriage is made. You get an approval for the marriage, and then have a wedding or civil ceremony.
Answer . You don't just get a green card. You still have to apply for a visa in order to stay in the United States. . If you get married overseas there are a few different visa options. If the American citizen has been living in the foreign country for over 6 months, they can apply for an I-130… visa for their spouse through direct consular filing, and the spouse can be brought to the U.S. permanently in as little as three months. It doesn't matter how long they have been married except that there is different paperwork and processes for those who have been married for more or less than two years. I brought my foreign husband to America, however, after having only been married for a month and a half since I qualified for Direct Consular Filing.. Typically, if you do not qualify for DCF, the processing for a visa can take as long as 6 to 8 months and necessitate time apart for the fiances/spouses. (MORE)
No. You do not become a US citizen by marrying one. That is for you to earn by your own abilities!
Marrying a US citizen does not automatically give a foreign national the right to permanent resident status (green card).. He or she will have to follow the prescribed procedures according to federal law, there is no way to determine how long it might take to receive permanent resident status or if… the foreign national will be granted such. (MORE)
Answer . It usually takes up to 1 to 2 yrs. for the whole process
No . No. Assuming that there are no other legal impediments to your entering Canada, you could get into Canada. You could apply for permanent resident status - something you should do BEFORE you arrive in Canada. Being married to a Canadian citizen would probably be a big advantage. Getting Canad…ian citizenship is a whole other process. Before you can apply, you have to have lived in Canada for three years without interruption or, in some cases, for three of the last four years. If you meet all of the requirements, THEN you can become a Canadian citizen. Being married to a Canadian will help with that. But marrying a Canadian will NOT automatically make you a Canadian citizen. (MORE)

How long would it take for the Green card to be processed if it is sponsored by a US Citizen to his brother who is also residing in US?
Answer: It depends on the person who is handling your case. It can take between 6 months to a year.
No. If you are a green card holder for a minimum period of 5 years and above the age of 18 you need to file the immigration Form N-400 to file for citizenship processing and the process is called naturalization.
If you entered the US lawfully, the process can take as little as 6months. If you entered the US unlawfully, you will need to obtain ahardship waiver and then return to your country for an interview.If you are abroad, the process takes about one year.
If you have a green card and have lived in the US for 17 years do you become a citizen if you marry an American?
If you have a greencard, you are eligible to apply for naturalization by yourself in 5 years from the date your greencard was first issued.
They can stay here. When a green card holder marries a US citizen, he/she gets to share the benefits enjoyed by the US citizen. The US citizen can also file in for the green card holder's citizenship application.
If a Mexican citizen marries a US Citizen the Mexican citizen has a green card and is married for twelve years with a child what happens if there is a divorce?
Nothing, you only have to be married for 3 years before they can revoke a green card for such a matter. And they don't even revoke a green card just for that, they have to prove that the marriage was entered unlawfully and not for the right reasons. The government is not going to force you to stay m…arried to someone just to keep their green card active (MORE)
The applicant should be 18 years and older with green card for a period of minimum 5 years continuous physical residence. Its 3 years for those who have married a US citizen and continue to do so.For persons in the US army minimum 1 year of service qualify them to apply for US citizenship.
NOPE. There is no need for a legal Green card holder to marry a USC for the sake of becoming a USC. If that person is a GC holder for 5 years and is above 18 yrs of age and maintained the required continuous residence criteria, then he/she can become a USC on his/her own.
my brother applied for my mom. since mom was in the US already (on a visitor's visa), he applied for both petition (for alien relative) and adjustment of status at the same time. if mom was not in US, he'd apply for the petition first, then adjustment of status once petition has been approved. 2 mon…ths later, he got a letter for her to go take her fingerprints (biometrics appointment). 5 months after that, he got a letter that she'd be interviewed in a couple months. so...in total, it took 9 months from the time uscis received the application, to the date of the greencard interview. but it may take 10-12 months total when mom finally receives the greencard itself in the mail.. btw, it probably helped that my brother's in the military, and that mom has lived in a US territory (effectively making her a US resident, sorta) for the past 40 years. so i really don't know if that helped speed up her application process.

You can't be a citizen until you 1)qualify 2)take the test 3)swear the oath.\n. \nI believe having children and staying in the country means that you have already qualified. You have to now think about 2&3. Go to www.uscis.gov for the answers.

This depends on the marriage laws of the jurisdiction in which you are married. First, you must obtain a marriage license. In some U.S. states, you must then wait a prescribed number of days, in other U.S. states, the marriage can be performed the very same day. As soon as the completed marriage lic…ense is filed with the appropriate town/city/county clerk by the marriage officiant (i.e., clergy or judge), the marriage becomes official. Citizenship does not alter the length of time that this process takes. It takes the same amount of time whether your spouse is a U.S. citizen or not. (MORE)

This may not be possible at all. There is a penalty if you enter the US illegally. If there was ILLEGAL entry, then it would take a trip to the U.S. embassy/consulate in that person's native country and have a successful I-601 waiver. These are hard to win, but if it is approved, then it would be ab…out 18+ months before the person can enter as a permanent residency. If the waiver is denied, then the person cannot enter the U.S. for 10 years- however, it is highly unlikely that such a person would be granted a visa in the future, making it a permanent ban. (MORE)

If the marriage was purely for the purpose of obtaining a Green card and if the USCIS comes to know of it, then the Green card will be revoked. The person will get to lose the legal permanent resident status.
Yes 19 year old US citizen can petition for spouse. If you are a U.S. Citizen, and your spouse lives in the U.S. legally, then you can submit Form I-130 and Form I-485 at the same time.
