If by "legal alien" you mean a "resident alien" (i.e., a foreigner with permission to live in the United States) and by "alien" you mean any alien, whether legal or illegal (undocumented), then the answer is yes. Generally, there is no citizenship requirement for marriage in the United States. What effect the marriage will have on the Immigration status of the parties involved is another question.
Yes it's legal in USA
Find someone willing to marry you.
Sure they can marry, but no felon from a foreign country can gain legal entry into the United States, much less legal status. They are persona non grata.
The age at which someone can marry an illegal alien is based on the law of the state. Anyone can legally marry if they of legal age. Most states put the age at about 18.
First of all If they are legal they can't be illegal. Second, you can marry anyone you choose to.
No ... both parties must be legal residents and must sign an affidavit. The illegal alien could face deportation.
Yes. There is no citizenship requirement or screening for marriage in the United States. If you are a gay man, you can marry a male illegal alien in any state where same-sex marriage is legal.
>>>>>Marry him / her!!!
Yes. Legal problems like this do not prohibit people from getting married.
He would need to apply and be granted legal permanent status before the couple could be legally married. I don't think you could marry him if he is illegal. Good Luck. You CAN marry an illegal alien. For whatever reason, it's legal to marry an illegal alien. You just need his birth certificate and proof of what state he lived in for the last 30 days prior to marriage.
No, unfortunately an undocumented alien must have legal documentation before most people would be willing to marry you. If you can find someone to marry you, then you are in luck. You cannot simply go to the Justice of the Peace and apply for a marriage certificate if the person you would like to marry is illegal.
not really because the illegal alien must have to go through "naturalization" and must wait a few years while living in the united states like 7 years.
Legal status is NOT a requirement to receive a marriage license. You can marry a citizen, resident alien, or illegal alien- it doesn't matter (as long as the other person is of the opposite sex).
In the UK and Ireland a 'marriage of convenience' as this would be called is illegal.
I don't know for sure, but I think that it's harder and takes longer than if he/she married an actual US citizen.
My guess is that the question is not really if a tourist can or can not marry a green card holder (of course she can), but whether there will be an immediate immigration benefit for her. Unfortunally, not.
You can marry, but would be wise to figure out the matter of legal residence so that you can enjoy the freedom of living wherever life takes you.
The answer is unequivocally yes. legal status or alien status bears no effect on a citizen's ability to marry an individual from any other country.
you can't marry an alien
Generally, there is no citizenship requirement for marriage in the United States. The illegal alien must present identification that is satisfactory to the clerk issuing the marriage license, but that can be a foreign passport.
wot are you on about a legal alien
Yes, an American citizen can marry an illegal alien in America. The illegal alien can file for a Visa after marrying an American at the INS office.
you can marry but it is no guarantee if they will become legal. You need to understand even if children are involved you are looking at time and money. if your spouse entered the country illegally they will have to return to their homeland at some point of the process (unless the laws change) and then depending on how long they have been in the u.s illegally, they have the option of denying them re-entry for up to 10 years. You need to know this.
the legal alien had just got his Citizianship for the USA.
