Marrying an American citizen does not give someone the right to stay in the country.

No, that would be bigamy, and it's illegal (as in you can go to jail for it).

Yes. With the proper documentation, there would be no restriction.

Your boyfriend can not adopt your child while he also remains yours. It does not matter if he is a US citizen, legal alien or illegal alien. For him to do that he would need to marry you. The license would cost $35.00 and you would each need a picture ID.

yes If so then what steps would l being a us citizen need to follow after we marry in the us?

I believe that you're guaranteed a citizenship when you marry a citizen, but being an illegal complicates the matter.

That would depend on if the child is born in america. If not, then they would have to go through tests like every one else.

yes i think they should be cuz they will have the name on record and i also think they chould be if they have kids in the US too

Even if you marry an American citizen, you would still need to get a green card, etc., and it can happen that spouses of American citizens do not get these. The best thing would be to consult with a lawyer to make sure that you take all the right steps in the right order.

Yes, but the American citizen must first apply for a fiancé/fiancee visa on the German citizen's behalf. This would be the I-129F petition. It would have to be approved before you can marry. This is if you plan to remain in the USA afterwards. For more info check out

Have you applied & received citizenship or were you born in America? Then you would be an American Citizen.

Your best bet is to get married in U.S make sure to get all proper documents,like visa passport and You'll be good to go!

A fiances visa first and formost, so you can get married inside the US. Then apply for a green card ,a lawyer is always best.

There are no restrictions on whom a refugee may marry. A refugee can definitely marry a US citizen, and they would also be able to attain permanent US residency through the marriage.

It's better to marry in USA. Then, he will be a citizen without taking a test. USA!!! Because None of You would have to take a test..but if you want to get married in a beautiful place get married in argentina Argentina is very pretty and you are allowed to still be considered a citizen if u r married to some1 in the USA so technically you can still get married there... I hope this helps you out.

This must be a two part question. What would prevent them from marrying?

Yes, an American citizen would be able to go to a Canadian college and then transfer to an American medical school.

That depends on where you settle in. If you settle into a place that would make you a citizen, then you're a citizen. If you settle into a place that wouldn't make you a citizen, then you're not a citizen. If you are asking if you marry an illegal immigrant then they wouldn't be deported. If fact its their ticket to the USA. If you are a foreigner and have a child here that child no matter your citizenship is a US citizen. Its why "they" hop the border and have kids. The mother then has access to the US because the child is a citizen. If you're short on cash, marry one. Sometimes they'll pay you.

IF YOU MARRY A MEXICAN, HE DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY BECOME AN AMERICAN CITIZEN. THE ONLY THING THAT MARRAIGE ESTABLISHES WHEN YOU MARRY A MEXICAN IS PERMANENT RESIDENT ALIEN STATUS FOR HIM. HE CAN ONLY KEEP THIS IF YOU REMAIN MARRIED FOR A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF YEARS. IF HE WISHES TO BECOME A CITIZEN, HE MUST TAKE THE TEST AND PASS. I married an illegal Mexican immigrant and I was told by an immigration officer that he can be deported until we have been approved for a visa number, but that some immigration officers will be lenient if the immigrant has papers with him showing that the process is underway.

No...not exactly. You would have to migrate to Tanzania to actually become a citizen of Tanzania, or you would have to have be born there.Does marrying a Mexican make you a Mexican? Think of it that way.

As long as they're a citizen they cannot be deported, there would be no point to it.

No Australian citizen would give up their passport to become Philippino. Many would live their entire life married to a Philippine citizen and stay alien.

Australian female citizen marrying US male citizen - which would be easiest marrying in US and come back to Australia to live or marry in Australia to live?

No You would have to apply for citizenship just like the other person would have to apply to become a US citizen.
