Yes but the American citizen has to file a petition for the immigrant.

An legal immigrant is a immigrant who granted permanent residence (aka greencard holder) to live legally in the United States. A naturalized citizen is an legal immigrant who applies to become a United Citizen after being a legal resident for 5 years. 3 years if they are married to a US Citizen.

A citizen of the United States or an organization or business can sponsor a person or family to live in the United States. The citizen must prove that he or she can provide financially for the immigrant until employment is secured.

Depends init. Probably not. But why would a British girl want to live in the UEA when she can live in Britain???(:

Yes, but the US citizen should sponsor his/her spouse's immigration in order for him/her to get a green card.

im sorry, but that question does not make sense, they do not "forgive" anything if you marry a citizen, no matter how the citizen abtained citizenship. I am a American citizen, and I am white, I was born in Washington state. I married a Mexican immigrant, we have been together for 7 years, and we have a child that was also born in Washington state, However, they will not let my husband live in the U.S. even though he is not a criminal, and our child and myself are totaly dependant on his income, and I am disabled and cannot care for my son and myself without him. This is a common misconception among Americans-that if an illegal immigrant gets married to a citizen, they have a right to become a citizen- However, it is just not true.

Yes, but there is a procedure to get a temporary ID. A bit tedious but not difficult if your spouse is a decent Turkish citizen.

Of course he can. Who could disallow love? Barack Obama?

Last I can recall you can become a citizen of Barbados but from what I can remember is that you either move in to live with the person or you marry a Barbadian person.

If you marry your British boyfriend, he does not automatically become an American citizen, and you do not automatically become a British citizen. You both have the right to live in each other's country, but you must file paperwork to do so. Citizenship is not automatic.

If you live in the US... Can you marry him? It depends on where you live. In most states, yes you could. However, marrying someone does not make them a citizen, nor does it automatically give them the right to stay in the country.

my wish is to one day live in the US but i wouldn't Marry and American just to become a citizen as much as i mite want to. I have morals.

You must move to Mexico with your spouse and live there for two years with an immigrant visa, then you can apply for Mexican citizenship. You can have both a Mexican and a US passport and be a dual citizen. If you were not married to a Mexican citizen, you would have to live there for four years.

Well if he is illegal you cant marry him because you have to sign papers but I dont know about that in Las Vegas! you can try if you feel that you truly love him SoInLoVe States establish marriage laws, the federal government establishes and enforces immigration laws. That being the case, in most US states it is still possible for an illegal immigrant who can present the required documentation to marry a US citizen. Contact the local branch of the state office that issues marriage licenses in the state in which you live for specific information.

You have to marry her in order for her to be able to keep a legal occupation in the United States.

Depends on how old the minor is and where you live. If she is old enough to be given parental consent you can.

Yes, but EU rules say that you have to be treated no differently than a UK citizen.
