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

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.

no not unless they where married to a USA partner.

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

You can't marry somebody--legal or not--who is already married. At least not in America. If the US doesn't recognize the marriage or if it is invalidated by a US judicial representative there's no reason why a citizen can't marry the immigrant.

Anyone born in the US, regardless of the citizenship of the parents, can elect to be a US citizen.

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.

You don't actually have to have a baby if you're married to a US citizen. If married to a US citizen for 3 years, I believe you automatically have a green card. If you have a baby, I think it would be a little quicker to get the green card. It happened to my brother, then she divorced him.

My guess is no. You have to prove that you have a real marriage to stay.

He can be arrested as he is a illegal immigrant and he has got married before waiting for a year aftr getting divorced.

If you mean can the elder perform the marriage ceremony of a US citizen JW with a JW who is an illegal immigrant in the US then assuming that it is not illegal to do so then I would also assume that it is allowable.

No. Marriage to a US citizen does not alter the fact that the foreign national is unlawfully present within the US and can be subject to deportation to his or her country of origin.

If your already married she's already legal! * An immigrant legal or illegal does not become a US citizen by marrying a US citizen. The female immigrant who is in the US illegal can still be deported under US immigration laws. The issue of her being married to a citizen and having children may or may not be to her advantage. If she is taken into custody she will be given the chance to appeal any deportation issues, but there can be no guarantee of the outcome. The best option is for her to consult an attorney who is knowledgeable in immigration law before taking any other action.

only if the person marries a US citizen

If a persons mother is illegal and they are a citizen, the citizen can file for a Visa for the mother. The citizen will need to file papers with the INS for citizenship.
