From what I understand, you can't marry anyone who is already married (unless they divorce their current partner or become a widow)

Can a illegal that has been deported marry a us citizen an be able to get papers?

Answeryes but it would take time Yes, an illegal immigrant can get married with an United States citzen even though he doesn't have papers to be in the United States. All he needs to do is to obtain a Mexican Passport at the nearest Mexican Consulate and take this with you when you obtain your marriage license. My husband and I had gotten married on the same day. However, I will advise that you carefully consider the consequences and take the advice of someone who has done this. Unless you are willing to reside in Mexico, don't get married!! After nearly 8 years of being married, my husband still cannot obtain permanent residency even though he had returned to his country while I went throught the entire two year process, not to mention a costly one, of petitioning for his return only to be denied.

If you marry a Mexican citizen would he become a citizen then or would he have to take the test to become a US citizen?

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.

How do you get out of a marriage to a woman who is stil married to their first husband?

If she is still married to her 1st husband then her second marriage to you is illegal and you are NOT married.

Your husband is living with an illegal immigrant but she married somebody else to get permanent status what should you do?

If the immigrant married a US citizen, then that's a done deal and she is no longer illegal. It sounds like you need to take care of your own affairs, starting with divorce proceedings.
