Perhaps, it depends upon the foreign national's individual circumstances. However, marriage to a US citizen does not automatically guarantee permanent resident status nor citizenship.

You must immediately apply for a permanent resident status.
I-130 and I-148 to change to permanent residency and status
Yes, regardless of the alien's status. He can adjust his status and apply for citizenship once he or she marries a U.S. citizen.
if you married a us citizen then you should be a citizen too.
No. Marrying a US citizen does not automatically confer permanent resident or citizenship status on any foreign national.
Visit your local INS office with your papers!
That legal alien will have status of US citizen. Bad answer. The alien must apply and QUALIFY foe citizenship. Ther are several disqualifiers.
No, marrying a US citizen or a permanent resident does not grant the illegal immigrant legal status regardless of whether there is a child involved or not.
You will have to file legel resident status like any other illegel that comes to the USA.
You simply marry him and apply for Permanent Resident status (Green Card).
Yes, if his status is brought to the attention of the immigration authorities.
Yes. Effective June 26, 2013, an American citizen may sponsor a foreign, same-sex spouse for permanent resident status.
No rights gained, save for the ability to legalize your residency status if the immigrant entered the country LEGALLY.
from the best of my knowledge, the best thing to do is to be a u s citizen and then try filing for your boyfriend
Even without knowing the spouseÕs status, the marriage is binding. Proceeding with a divorce is the only way to legally separate for that person.
No. Any non-citizen who intends to reside permanently in the US, whether or not married to a citizen, must obtain permanent resident status.
if u married an illegal alien u dont have a status so to speak, but u need to get him a green card, or he will get deported and whoever is married to him will have 15 yrs to life in jail for housing illegal aliens
Yes. He can adjust status to that of legal permanent resident without leaving the country.
No. Persons who are considered to be illegally within the US cannot apply for resident status even if they are considered legally married to a US citizen. Federal law applies to immigration issues not state laws, so, it is conceivable for an illegal immigrant to legally marry a US citizen but that does not give she or he US legal status or the right to apply for such.
No, marrying a U.S. citizen does not automatically convey permanent residency or citizenship. The proper procedures for obtaining resident status will need to be followed by the non-citizen, the issue of a criminal record may play a significant part in a decision by the USICS. (www.usics.gov)
im 21 and i was brought into the usa illegaly when i was 11 months old..but im hoping for it to be possible to get something..
Then you get married. If the baby is born in the US then he/she is automatically a citizen, regardless of the mother's status. If the mother is a citizen and marries a non-citizen it usually makes it much easier for the non-citizen to stay in the US, but it's not automatic.
Your status is "married." You are still a citizen of this country. There is no special status.
Sure, there are no restrictions on marriage. However, being married does not automatically change one's visa status or citizenship. Make sure you understand the requirements to become a legal resident so that you are not separated from your spouse by INS!
Your status as a citizen. This doesn't belong in this section.
