what she has to do, is to file apetition for her husband for spouse visa in USA , and i think it will take time until the time he can get to USA with her, i also in same situation right now ( i am married with USA citizen man) , will be lots form that need to file I-130, and also I-129F and other stuff, cannot help much, but taht what i know for now, and she need look for imigration lawyer. ==New Answer== Depending on where she married him, she should have checked with the Us Emabssy in that country to see if they would do a Direct Consular Filing for her and her husband. Then, if it were approved, he would immidiately be granted permanent residency with all of it's benefits and be able to come into the Us with her and set up household wothout all the wait involved with the answer above.

No. When you are born an American you are always an American unless you decide to take the citizenship of another country.

Nope, both need to learn new words in English and both to drive on the wrong side of the road for each other?

No, they do not become a citizen by virtue of marriage.

Yes you can but you need to do it soon, you will need to answer lots of questions for how and why you entered the country illegally but they should let you in the country

If they're in the country legally, they should apply for US citizenship.

Marriage is a wonderful event. Yes, if a female US citizen legally marries a non US citizen in the state of Michigan, they are indeed legally married.

Once a person from another nation marries a Canadian citizen, he or she becomes a permanent resident. The process takes approximately 50 days for the paperwork.

In Egpyt, yes. A US citizen may NEVER marry more than one person, regardless of where that occurs, and even if it is legal in that country. If you return to the United States only your first marriage will be recognized.

They can stay here. When a green card holder marries a US citizen, he/she gets to share the benefits enjoyed by the US citizen. The US citizen can also file in for the green card holder's citizenship application.

Once you are officially married to an American citizen, you can not be deported from the country, unless you engage in a criminal offense.

They will become an American citizen

Yes, as long as it was legal in the country you married in......it will be legal in the US. As long as it's done outside another country, they can not do anything to you (Unless it was illegal in the other country in the first place)

when a illegal immigrant marries a u.s. citizen he or she becomes a u.s. citizen and does not have to return to his or her country I don't think that it's entirely true. If you don't have any papers, then you can not become a US citizen UNLESS you have a visa or greencard.

User Avatar

No, they would still have to apply for citizenship under the established laws and meet all requirements for becoming a U.S. citizen.

An Indian cannot become a US citizen by marrying a US citizen. Not only Indians, but any other person from another country cannot become a US citizen just by marrying a US citizen. A US citizen can sponsor a Indian on an appropriate visa ( like K-1 visa) after which he/she can adjust their status to that of a permanent resident. After being a PR for 3 yrs, the Indian can then apply for US citizenship, if needed.

No rights gained, save for the ability to legalize your residency status if the immigrant entered the country LEGALLY.

User Avatar

The non-US citizen spouse must obtain a visa before entry and is subject to immigration requirements. (Marriage doesn't convey citizenship, but helps).

A legal immigrant who marries a U.S. citizen can apply for a green card, so s/he can stay in the U.S., travel outside the U.S. and re-enter, and work in the U.S.

In the appropriate court in the state or province where they now reside.
