Yes, but they have to apply for and receive US immigration permission . Do not work until you have your Employment Authorization Card. You can get one by filing the I-765, which you should have filed in the package for the Adjustment of Status based on marriage to a US citizen.

No, the Canadian has to be married to the American in order to live or work in America. Because you have to be married to an American to get a green card in order to do that.

can a Canadian citizen become us citizen

That depends on the judge. Normally in the US the mother is given custody. Although there is a trend of joint custody. It's no different than being married to a US citizen. My sister was married to Canadian and she was given full custody. It is always best to work out the arraingment with the ex.

the simplest way is to marry a canadian citizen

User Avatar

Yes, they can. You just need to do the paper works at the nearest Canadian embassy or consulate general. Your children will then receive wallet-sized card which is their certificate of Canadian citizenship.

Even if you are a Canadian citizen and now you have gone and married a permanent U.S citizen and he is a missdemenor , it is possible, as you may not know at the time of marrige and he is only a suspect of murder.

User Avatar

my advice is he should because if he is married to a legal citizen he should get the same rights.

User Avatar

No, must correct the illegal status first.Does have marriage, children, work history in USA going for him.I would not leave the USA for any reason, might be refused entry

If you are talking about getting married in Canada, then no paperwork is needed. In the US a fiancee's visa, which takes four months to get, is required.Answernope.. you can get married but you won't be able to work. I AM LEGALLY married to an American man and i am Canadian. I got married to him on a visit last fall... right now, however we are living apart dealing with some of our own issues as to where to live. You can be married but you may not be able to work. As a Canadian you can visit up to 181 days without losing your medical plan back in Canada. Think about all the old ladies that live in Canada during the summer, and Florida in the winter....... they can visit, they just can't work legally.

The Canadian police can, and do, work inside the U.S. but if you are asking if they can become employed by a a U.S. police agency, no, they cannot. Not unless they became a naturalized US citizen.

User Avatar

No. They still have to apply for citizenship through the immigration office. Even if they are married the application can be denied.

User Avatar

You can lose it if you become a Canadian citizen through Naturalization.

Yes you can. If you have work to be done in Canada, this is one of the easier ways of doing it.

Yes a Zambian citizen can marry a Us citizen and work in the us because the zambian citizen can obtain a citizenship by marriage and automatically become a citizen of us and is allowed and qualified to work there.

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 Canadian 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.
