Does an illegal alien become a legal resident by marrying a US resident not citizen but US resident?

There is a lot of paperwork involved! Even if you married a US resident or even citizen that does not make you a us citizen. In fact, you could get into a lot of trouble if they deem that you purposely entered the US to get married to become a US citizen. Although it is possible. Your spouse would have to be a permanent resident or US citizen for you to become a permanent resident. The US prefers you marry (in our out of the US) then the permanent resident or citizen applies for your entry OR the US citizen of Permanent Resident applies before for you to enter the US and then you get married in the US and apply for Permanent residency. Great site I found as my husband immigrated from the UK on a Fiance visa. but what if you don't have a date of birth I also, and may be wrong, but if it is deemed that you married to create a citizenship or legal residency, that might be unlawful and you could get into trouble. Though, a lot of military marry women in foreign lands which brings them here. Which is a lot different then someone unlawfully doing so. The US doesn't exactly make it a point to extradite spouses.

How can you bring your husband to us if you have a green card?

Lawful Permanent Residents who got married before obtaining a Green Card are not required to file an Immigrant Petition on behalf of their spouse (or any children born before becoming a Lawful Permanent Resident). A spouse and eligible children of a Lawful Permanent Resident in this category may apply for a Green Card without having an approved Immigrant Petition. This process is known as "accompanying" or "follow to join." Lawful Permanent Residents who got married after obtaining a Green Card must file a Form I-130 Immigrant Petition on behalf of their spouse in order to sponsor them for Lawful Permanent Resident (Green Card) status.

How long does it take to get your US citizenship if you marry a US citizen?

A permanent resident can apply for citizenship after 3 years of marriage to a US citizen. You will need to fill out form N-400 ( Naturalization) which comes with a $330 (processing fee) and a $70 Biometric (finger print & background check).If you are applying based on 5 years as a Permanent Resident or 3 years as a Permanent Resident married to a U.S. citizen, you may file for naturalization up to 90 days before you meet the continuous residence requirement. For example, if you are applying based on 3 years of continuous residence as a Permanent Resident married to a U.S. citizen, you can apply any time after you have been a Permanent Resident in continuous residence for 3 years minus 90 days. You may send your application before you have met the requirement for continuous residence only. Therefore, you must still have been married to and living with your U.S.citizen spouse for 3 years before you may file your application. You must also meet all the other eligibility requirements when you file your application with USCIS.Personal ExperienceI married my husband 13 years ago (I am a US Citizen).

First question, dual citizen of what country? How did he obtain his LPR "Green Card", through marriage to you or by other means? Any expired green card can simply be renewed at USCIS office, if he maintains lawful permanent resident status. If he was a temporary resident, he will need to remove his conditional residence status, usually via interview with USCIS.

What do you mean by "her spouse AND her husband. What kind of soap opera is this? No, you can only apply for your legal spouse (aka, husband). And by legal spouse or husband, I mean, the one you actually married by law. She filed a petition to bring her spouse (married legally in their home country) for permant visa but since she expects for this petition to take some time and since she is giving birth in the next 4 months can she petition her husband for visiting visa without compromising the permanent visa petition? In respone to the first answer, the spouse and husband are the same person, thank u in advance for answering.
