No, marriage to a US citizen does not mean the foreign national will be granted permanent residency or citizenship status.

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.


An illegal immigrant would not gain legal status by marrying a felon because of a felon is not recognized as a citizen of his or her country and it is the same with the illegal immigrant he or she is not recognized as a legal immigrant. If such a union exist then there would be severe penaltiies for both couple,a deportation and even more years in prison An illegal immigrant would not gain legal status by marrying a felon because of a felon is not recognized as a citizen of his or her country and it is the same with the illegal immigrant he or she is not recognized as a legal immigrant.

Yes, a person can marry an illegal immigrant, but that doesnt mean that it will lead to the immigrant getting legal status.


Unless you can attain refugee or asylum status, it is impossible for an illegal immigrant to attain citizenship with current U.S. laws.


There are not grounds for filing a civil suit in such a situation. In addition, a foreign national whether illegal or not does become a citizen by marrying an American citizen, nor are they guaranteed permanent resident status. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, http://www.uscis.gov


Yes, it is illegal to marry for money to allow someone to obtain citizenship status.


If born in the United States the baby will be a legal citizen, the immigrants status will not change.


Yes, if his status is brought to the attention of the immigration authorities.


yes if you are born in the U S you are a citizen no matter what what your parent status is at the time of your birth.


If an undocumented (illegal) immigrant is married to a U.S. citizen, then they are a U.S. citizen. So their divorce from another U.S. citizen won't affect the status of their child at all.


No rights gained, save for the ability to legalize your residency status if the immigrant entered the country LEGALLY.


Yes you can- but remember that the ability to marry an illegal is SEPARATE from whether or not that illegal will ultimately be able to get legal status due to that marriage.


It is possible for a U.S. citizen to marry an illegal immigrant if the immigrant has valid identification. However, marrying a citizen does not automatically confer permanent resident status or citizenship and is not a guarantee that the person will not face deportation. Such situations are assessed by the USCIS on an individual basis, for more information visit the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services website at http://www.uscis.gov

No. He or she is required to apply for permanent residence status according to US immigration laws.



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.


First, there's no such thing as an illegal citizen. Second, there's no such thing as an alternative lifestyle. But if you are asking if a marriage between a gay person and an illegal immigrant of the opposite sex would be valid if it is not consummated, that depends upon the laws of the state where the marriage took place. If the marriage was made with the intent for the illegal alien to gain citizenship or permanent resident status, that won't happen. Marrying a U.S. citizen DOES NOT automatically confer citizenship or permanent resident status.


No, an illegal immigrant could never change status to a citizen, he would have to become a legal permanent resident first (LPR). But in any case, just making $10k/month wont allow an illegal immigrant to become a LPR


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


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


Anybody can marry a US citizen, provided that they have a valid and legal immigrant status in the US. If not, then they may have to face unnecessary deportation and other problems when reapplying to enter the US. An illegal alien does NOT attain US citizenship simply by virtue of a marriage ceremony.An immigrant with a legal status can very well marry a US citizen and get to enjoy the benefits.


No its impossible for them to attain resident status unless trough a blood relative.


Yes. His immigration status bear no significance when it comes to parental rights.


If the baby was in the U.S. then the child is a US citizen. However, an illegal DOES NOT get legal status merely by having a citizen child, and in fact is still subject to deportation. The government does IN FACT deport illegals with citizen children.
