if the illegal alien has not been in trouble or been in detention, it is in there best interest to go home and apply for legal residency, it could take a couple years, but if you are caught here being illegal, you can be banned for re-addmision, deported , and cannot apply to come back for ten years

You must apply for his residency at the closest INS office to you. 3 years after approval he can apply for citizenship. Just make sure he did marry you for love and NOT papers. Good Luck!

Yes, a US citizen can marry the illegal alien in any state but must file for spouses residency as soon as they are married.

No, an illegal alien cannot apply for a patent. If you are not legally in the US then why should you have the rights given by the Constitution? -I got a patent as an Illegal alien. I also served subpoenas. There is no law against this. I am now a US citizen. God bless USA !

The resident would need to wait until becoming a US citizen until filing for residency for the illegal alien spouse.

You can help an illegal alien become legal by helping them fill out the appropriate applications for residency and paying the needed fees. This will put them on the right track to becoming a legal resident or citizen.

The State of Texas does not have a residency requirement for marriage. Applicants for a marriage license must present identification to the satisfaction of the clerk issuing the license. That identification can be a foreign passport.

Return to their home country and apply for a visa.

It depends. If your looking for a O1 or O2 work visa and then apply for residency, that is slightly easier but harder to get. Marriage seems to be the popular way to go.

The best avenue to take is to gain legal residency. Being an illegal immigrant puts you in various situations that can cause problems for you, most importantly deportation. I would recommend contacting an immigration attorney to apply for a visa.

I do not think that applys any longer. So the answer is no you will not automaticly become an American Citzen just because you marry one of us. I do not think that applys any longer. So the answer is no you will not automaticly become an American Citzen just because you marry one of us.

No, the alien registration number is administered after a person sends in their application for permanent residency. It will appear on the receipt notice after the USCIS checks over the I-485 application to see that all required documents have been supplied (before permanent residency is approved). J-1 visa holders will get an alien registration number when/if they apply for permanent residency.

Illegal immigrants are not eligible to obtain citizenship. They have to meet certain requirements (including legal residency requirements in most countries) before they could even be considered. -- Help me in the battle to conquer cancer. Please support my fundraising efforts at www.conquercancer.ca/goto/donate What steps does an illegal alien over 21 years old need to take to be eligable to apply for citizenship; do they need to return to their homeland to start process?

There is no such thing, if you're illegal you do not have legal permanent residency.

User Avatar

Yes, because they would not be a natural-born citizen of the United States, or whatever country they landed in. If they apply for citizenship first, and enter the country legally, then no. They would not be considered an illegal alien.

Never, you are in trouble as soon as they find you've lived in the US illegally.

I do not think there is an illegal alien, but there is such thing as alien

An illegal alien can get an alien registration number by filing for one from the INS Bureau. The illegal alien will need to show proof of identity such as a birth certificate.

'Illegal alien citizen' is an oxymoron.

An alien is not illegal as long as she/he has documentation of status. An alien who is documented to be a permanent resident is not illegal. If the alien does not have and never has had documentation of an immigration status, then that person is an illegal alien.
