If they are not 18 years of age no. But if they have parental consent then yes.

No of course not because just because she/he is underage and illeagal doesnt mean new rules apply to him/her .

yes, and even u can sleep together also

As long as they are a legal immigrant, there should be no problems. If they are not legal, it could result in deportation.

u can marry whoever u want, as long as ur in love with that person. otherwise u would have made a huge mistake.

Yes but not without her parents consent and if you are under 18 you cant marry with out your parents consent.

A sponsor should be atleast 18 years of age at the time of sponsoring an immigrant. He/she should be a US Citizen or a Permanent Resident in order to be a sponsor.

No, only when the child is an adult (18) can they request a green card for the parents. They will be illegal until then, unless they marry a citizen or get an employer to sponsor them.

Only after the child turns 18, can he/she petition for GC for the parent.

Yes. There is generally no citizenship requirement for marriage in the United States. So, if you can marry at the age of 18 in your state, then it doesn't matter if the person you marry is a citizen, permanent resident or undocumented alien.

I believe it depends on the state, but in many states with full signed parental consent, you may marry under the age of 18. (It would depend on the state, how young you can marry, and if someone over 18 can marry someone under 18.)

Mature grownups, anyone over 18, or anyone under 18 with their parents permission.

Yes. If their mother or father became a US. citizen then legally if they're under 18 they are a citizen.

18 or you have to have your parents consent if you are a minor and think hard about this decision when you marry an immigrant the government is involved in your lives and you will have to go to INS and deal with interviews to make sure that they think that your marriage is for love and not to just get his green card hope this helps Good luck and God Bless!!

idk it might depend on what state your in but as long as they are legal immigrants i dont see why not

green card life in amirca for 18 years and marry some one that has citizen ship

You have to be 18 to get married in Connecticut. But if you are under 18 parental consent is needed. Also if you are under 16 you cannot get married.

If you are under the age of 18 (a minor), in the United States, you can not marry anywhere without parental, or legal guardian consent.

if they are under the age of 18 they are us citizens too.

No group is restricted from voting. Anyone under 18 and not a citizen can not vote.

Anyone who was born in the U.S can be a citizen, under 18's are just not officialy adults

The answer depends upon the marriage laws of the jurisdiction in which you will be married. In most U.S. states, two persons can marry at the age of 18, but it is possible to marry at an earlier age with parental consent. The minimum age for marriage is the same whether the parties are both citizens or not. The fact that one is a citizen of Mexico does not change the minimum age. I'm sorry, but I don't pretend to know what the marriage laws of Mexico are, if you are intending to marry in Mexico.
