call USCIS at 1-800-375-5283 and talk to a represenative, or visit their website at www.uscis.gov (uscis used to be called INS, and they are part of homeland security they can answer most questions reguarding Immigration and visas)
No, you have to first obtain a green card and fulfill the residency and criminal background requirements.
Yes they retain citizenship.
please, anyone can help me? i need to know what is the requirement for permanent residency visa of American married to a filipina?
Get married and apply for Permanent Residency which will take about 6 months to 1 year to get approved. Then after getting Residency status after 3 years apply for Citizenship.
You should have applied for Permanent Residency 7 years ago when you got married. I recommend you apply for Permanent Residency now and in 3 years you can apply for Citizenship.
If you are a US Citizen, legally divorced or widowed, you can request permanent residency for your spouse, regardless of how you gained your citizenship.
As of June 26, 2013, an American citizen may sponsor a foreign spouse of the same sex for a visa, permanent residency and, eventually citizenship.
No you guys get nothing ...lol...
See an immigration lawyer.
A alien legally or illegally to the country can not gain citizenship if they get married to a American they have to apply for citizenship to obtain it. That is the answer to the question because the cirumstances of the question does not exist.
Her and Dalton were never married.
The government of the Philippines does not allow dual citizenship.
She will still need to be sponsored by the spouse (who is an American Citizen) and apply for residency first. Once permanent residency is granted, she has to wait (I believe it's approximately two years) to apply for citizenship.
A certificate of domestic partnership will not help you obtain US citizenship, since the federal government does not recognize domestic partnerships or civil unions.If a foreigner is legally married to an American citizen, then the citizen spouse can generally sponsor the foreign spouse for a visa, permanent residency and, eventually, citizenship.
yes. it can, but not always is.
They should be able to through an American Embassy.
SHE WILL BE A PIO (PERSON OF INDIAN ORIGIN) BUT WILL BE AN AMERICAN CITIZEN.
Consult an immigration attorney before the marriage! There are certain forms and procedures that have to be followed in order for the citizenship to be granted. The first step is to get a green card. Citizenship requires a number of years of residency, filing the applications and passing a test. Then one can be sworn in as a citizen.
No, you cannot. The US citizen has to sponsor you to move to the US. After you get your permanent residency (green card) then you have to live 3 to 5 years continuously in the US and then apply for US citizenship.
"Spouses can be granted US citizenship by being married to an American citizen for two years." "Regular, responsible, and informed voting is one of the duties of citizenship." "Some countries allow their residents to maintain dual citizenship."
You are going to need to contact the Immigration & Naturalization Service.
It is illegal.
In most cases, a country's immigration laws only care about your country of citizenship. Having a green card gives you legal permanent residency in the United States, but does not grant you any special status to enter other countries. You will have to determine what Panama's laws are regarding your country of citizenship, which is the country that issued the passport that you will use to travel.
