Best Answer

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.

How long does a permanent resident alien have to be married to a US citizen to get citizenship?

Marrying a U.S. citizen DOES NOT confer automatic citizenship or permanent resident status to the non-citizen spouse. The non-citizen spouse will have to apply following the standard immigration procedures as prescribed by law. http://www.uscis.org Marriage to a US Citizen does not automatically qualify an alien for citizenship. Contact a reputible Immigration attorney for guidence on pursuing citizenship.

Can an Indian who has been a permanent American resident for the past 10 years apply for a green card for his brother who is an Indian resident?

No, US permanent residents can only apply for immediate relatives (spouse and unmarried children under 18) regardless of how many years they have been a permanent resident. If the US permanent resident would like to petition for his/her brother, he/she must first become a US citizen through naturalization (which he/she may after 5 years of being a PR). US citizens may petition for spouses, children, siblings, and parents.
