Although there are not laws prohibiting a foreign national who is unlawfully present in the U.S. from marrying a U.S. citizen such an act does not change the non-citizen's illegal status. The citizen spouse cannot apply for permanent residency for the foreign national spouse, this means the non-citizen spouse is required to leave the U.S. and then apply for reentry on the basis of the marriage and according to USCIS regulations. INA Section 212(a)(6)(A), USC 1182 (a)(6)(A). United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, http://www.uscis.gov
it is illegal
There is not any way for an illegal alien to become legal except through application to the government. Age and time in the country are not an automatic way to become legal.
Yes, it is a legal marriage, however, it does not mean the illegal alien won't be deported back to their country.
In the UK and Ireland a 'marriage of convenience' as this would be called is illegal.
A person will not automatically become a US citizen as soon as soon as an illegal alien marries a citizen. The illegal alien will have to file for a VISA with the INS.
Marriage is recognized by the US , but they must report it when they get home. It does not affect their alien status.
The United States deport illegal aliens. You could not reveal that he/she is an illegal alien and use a different identity
if they had sex with it
Find a lawyer and file papers through the Naturalization Department.
Yes. There is no citizenship requirement or screening for marriage in the United States. If you are a gay man, you can marry a male illegal alien in any state where same-sex marriage is legal.
Generally, there is no citizenship requirement for marriage in the United States. The illegal alien must present identification that is satisfactory to the clerk issuing the marriage license, but that can be a foreign passport.
Any marriage strictly for this purpose violates a federal law. If this is suspect, the alien may be removed from the country, pending investigation. See: "Immigration Marriage Fraud Amendments of 1986"
The simple answer is, NO, at least not right away. An illegal alien gains very little from marriage to a permanent resident. You cannot adjust status to permanent resident inside the U.S. You would have to leave the country to apply for an immigrant visa based upon the marriage.
Go through the process everyone else does?
you need to become a us resident. its bad to be an illegal imigrant
>>>>>Marry him / her!!!
An illegal alien cannot become a child's guardian. A guardian is someone who is legally allowed to look after a child and lives in a particular country legally.
Unfortunately, an illegal alien can not become an US citizen if they have been deported before. If they have a felony, they can't become a US citizen either.
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.
