I think that you can because I have a friend a long time ago who did the same thing. He married a girl he fell in love with here in the states, but I have not heard from them forever now and I did not ask how he did it.

no,but the us citizen can help the immigrant become legal.

illegals can get married anywhere to whoever they want, is no big deal.As the ability to get married is a State-level jurisdiction, and immigration status is a Federal-level jurisdiction, the two are NOT related.I am not aware of any state that requires a person to be a legal immigrant to be married, though they almost certainly will have to produce some sort of identification document to prove who they are (NOT that they are here legally). For instance, a person who has overstayed their visa is technically an illegal immigrant, yet would still have a passport (from their home country) which could easily be used to fulfill the identification requirement necessary to get a marriage license.However, do note that marriage does not automatically convey any change in immigration status. That is an ENTIRELY different question.

Your status is "married." You are still a citizen of this country. There is no special status.

Yes, it doesn't matter where they came from,or what color they are, if they married & they love one another, they should live together, grow old together, live their life together, forever & ever.

It is legal in the United States for an illegal immigrant to marry a US citizen. Once the marriage is legal, the illegal immigrant becomes a legal immigrant and can stay in the US for the course of the marriage.

Marrying a US citizen does not automatically make the other person a citizen. Spouses of US citizens can and do get deported everyday. Send him back home and apply for him while he is not in the U.S.

does an illegal immigrant married to a citizens us have to go back to his country to get green card

Good for you! Hope it works out and you have many years of happiness together.

Marriage is for life. It is illegal to marry an illegal immigrant to change their immigration status.

YOU DON'T (or move to the persons country)

Yes, an illegal immigrant, in the US can get married to an American citizen and obtain their documents

In Tennessee you can get married without permission at the age of 18. With parental permission you can get married at 16. Under 16 requires a court order.

The same way you marry a girlfriend that has not overstayed. Getting married has nothing to do with immigration law. However, any falsification on the marriage license can invalidate the marriage. Being in the country illegally will not change based on marital status. If you really want to get married and have a long relationship, consult an immigration attorney.

Yes, an illegal immigrant from Bulgaria can get married in the United States. An American can choose to marry whomever they want.

No, you cannot get married in Tennessee at age 14. Even with a court order you have to be at least 16.

He married Gala, whose real name was Elena Ivanovna Diakonova. She was a Russian immigrant.

You can get married, but from an immigration standpoint, it will not grant you legal status. If you are overstayed, you must leave the country and return LEGALLY in order to appropriately take advantage of the US laws and constitution. You can also apply for a green card, however, it will not be granted because your are not eligible being overstayed with an expired I94. You are an ILLEGAL alien, thus you loose your privileges.

Illegal immigrants, like regular people, fall in love and get married. They would move with their spouse because it is better for families to stay together in the same place.

You get married the normal way, just as if you were marryng another American. If the alien is illegal because he overstayed his visa, you would file for adjustment of status after getting married and wait for the greencard here in the states. if the alien is illegal because he snuck into the country, you would file the I-130 then file for the K-3 in his country. He'd be denied and you'd then file the I-601

If they have a green card, they can work.
