In a lot of states, you would marry just as two US citizens would, depending upon your status, illegal alien, illegal immigrant, visa, or what not, there usually isn't any trouble trying to marry, I'm unsure what you need in all the different states, I'm actually trying to find out what me and my fiance' need to get married in Kentucky, but typically all the both of you need are Photo ID's and your birth certificates. I would call your "justice of the peace" and ask him/her what you need before going up there =)(also) if anyone has any information on what you need in Kentucky while I'm on here, let me know =)
