It will take about three months for the work permit and social security number to come out, then another three months are needed for the actual green card. In other words, it will take total of 6months or even less as long as your application and the documents are correct and everything is perfectly prepared and sent to the USCIS. It is very important that you send every document correct and flawless. Then, less than 6months is guaranteed.
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.
No he cannot
Being married would not change the fact she is an illegal alien. She could still be sent back to her country of origin.
no green card or faulty marriage
If you are married, you can apply for divorce.
Well the baby is a U.S. Citizen and since the baby is a U.S. Citizen, in time the "illegal immigrant" may be able to get a green card and first of all an illegal immigrant isn't illegal if they have a visa, except if they were living and working in the U.S on a tourist visa,
the US citizen shouldn't
Absolutely not, don't even think about it.
US Citizens can't be deported from the US. Any alien can be deported.
My guess is no. You have to prove that you have a real marriage to stay.
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.
If the baby was in the U.S. then the child is a US citizen. However, an illegal DOES NOT get legal status merely by having a citizen child, and in fact is still subject to deportation. The government does IN FACT deport illegals with citizen children.
The illegal partner will probably be repatriated to his/her home country or be imprisioned prior to deportation. The American citizen may be fined or criminally charged.
An American citizen has the right to petition for green card for relatives. Once they are married and have their papers ready the US citizen can petition for spouse's green card. Subsequently the kid can also become US citizen or green card depending on the support papers which can be shown for either of them. During the stay in US its very important for immigrant to have papers for a legal and authorized stay in US.
If an immigrant overstays his work visa but marries a green card holder: can he get work authorization & how long does it takes to process the paperwork? can he get a green card & how long it takes to process the paperwork?
No. If he was illegal before, he's still illegal. He will need to go through the system to seek a green card. If he already has violated U.S. laws, he may never be able to seek citizenship.
does an illegal immigrant married to a citizens us have to go back to his country to get green card
get a green card or a visa..
An American citizen can marry an immigrant who already has a green card in the United States. The immigrant is placed in preference category 2A, and is placed on a waiting list.
No. You have to have made a lawful entry. Seek the advice of an immigration attorney immediately.
if u married an illegal alien u dont have a status so to speak, but u need to get him a green card, or he will get deported and whoever is married to him will have 15 yrs to life in jail for housing illegal aliens
You don't actually have to have a baby if you're married to a US citizen. If married to a US citizen for 3 years, I believe you automatically have a green card. If you have a baby, I think it would be a little quicker to get the green card. It happened to my brother, then she divorced him.
If they have a green card, they can work.
