Yep, legal resident. Citizenship takes time. I'll marry you.
I should add you can not marry someone to become legitimate AND you still must file all the proper paperwork. In other words you must actually marry out of love and not for citizenship.
by legally marrying that us citizen or print a form from the internet requesting to be a permanent resident
No. The only way to become a citizen is to be born in the country or do the regular process of becoming a citizen.
Yes, marrying a U.S. Citizen in order to become a U.S. citizen is illegal.
No. He or she is required to apply for permanent residence status according to US immigration laws.
Marrying a citizen is not enough to get citizenship. If the marriage was done to get citizenship and there was no love or committment, the marriage is illegal.
You become a resident of California by LIVING in California, this has nothing to do with marriage or legal status- an illegal can be a resident of California
Nobody, not even a Venezuelan can become a US Citizen just by marrying a US Citizen. But it is by far the easiest ways of getting the citizenship. A person marrying a US citizen will be first granted with the conditional permanent resident status. After being so for 3 years, they can file in their citizenship application, if they satisfy all other eligibility conditions.
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.
It is wrong for a citizen to knowingly marry an illegal alien. Get advice from an Immigration lawyer.
NO. It is not a criminal act.
You've got to be kidding. Breaking the law is not the path to citizenship or permanent residence, neither is marriage.
No, marrying a U.S. citizen does not automatically convey permanent residency or citizenship. The proper procedures for obtaining resident status will need to be followed by the non-citizen, the issue of a criminal record may play a significant part in a decision by the USICS. (www.usics.gov)
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.

If there was illegal entry, then no, marriage doesnt make you a legal resident. You would need to file a 130 petition along with a I-601 waiver at the U.S. embassy/consulate in HONDURAS, and you would be required to appear there. If you had legal entry, then it would be possible to get legal residency through marriage to a citizen.
Can an illegal alien who was deported and barred for ten years come back sooner by marrying an us citizen?
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.
