You must get married to GET a SS card. Get married and then apply for Permanent Residency. The social security system (number) was created for a retirement & disabilty system for the U.S. labor force. You do not have to have a social security number to visit, travel or any other activity that has nothing to do with employment. This includes a marriage certificate. Some banks are even willing to open an account without a social security number. A person does need a vaild social security number or tax payer ID number to be legally employed in the U.S. The employer is required to document this number on Form I-9 but is not required to verify if the number is valid.

Is a marriage to an illegal immigrant binding without social security number?

You need to obtain more information about how marriage to an illegal immigrant will affect you. There will probably be issues if the illegal immigrant did not enter the country legally which will cause delays. If you are already married, then you need to follow the steps necessary to make the marriage one that is true in the eyes of the law, and you may find that you put the cart before the horse. Investigate whether it would be much easier to go get married in his country and bring him back as your husband and what visa you would need.

The first thing to realize is that they are an ILLEGAL immigrant. Which means they are in the country without permission and the necessary documents. Which also means they can be deported at any time. Can you get married? Few, if any, places ask any questions regarding citizenship or criminal history when applying for a marriage license. Which means you can get married. And then have the immigrant deported and be married to someone that you cannot live with.

Are illegal immigrants deported to their country?

Yes, usually. But there are many ways an illegal immigrant can make it difficult to get sent back. In order to to be let back into their country they need a passport. If the passport is "lost", or the illegal immigrant never had one and managed to get in without one there is then a problem. The government has to prove the person is who they say are in order for the embassy of that country to give them a new passport. The illegal immigrant has no papers. This can take weeks or months, during which you either have to keep the illegal immigrant in prison at the taxpayers expense, or let them out on bail, then they run away. If the illegal immigrant never had a passport, it is even more difficult to prove where they came from. The illegal immigrant can give a false name, and a false nationality. A mexican could claim to be Spanish. The Spanish then say they have no record of somebody of that name, and refuse to accept them. It can cost a lot of time and money to deport an illegal immigrant.

Can an illegal immigrant get married to someone on an H1B visa and obtain legal dependency status?

If we are talking about a modern country it is possible but difficult. Even not being an illegal immigrant it can be difficult to get legal dependency status. The reason being is that the country that you are trying to will try to prove that you are not marrying for the reason of getting citizenship. You will have to make an convincing argument. Also you cannot have a criminal record, so if you are caught being an illegal immigrant than you have just about screwed up your chances. It is harder to leave places such as the United States, Australia, England etc than it is to get in (without a legal visa)
