No. Any non-citizen who intends to reside permanently in the US, whether or not married to a citizen, must obtain permanent resident status.

She remains a Filipino citizen. Her US husband can petition for her, in which case, once approved, she becomes an American citizen. She can retain Filipino citizenship (hold dual citizenship) by applying at her nearest Philippine Embassy in the US (if she is based there).


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.


No. Marrying a US citizen does not automatically confer permanent resident or citizenship status on any foreign national.



No, it does not.Marrying a US citizen never automatically makes you a citizen- however, it does speed up the process if you are trying to naturalize. Normally, a legal resident has to wait 5 years before they can apply for US citizenship; if a legal resident marries a US citizen, this is shortened to 3 years.


Yes. Effective June 26, 2013, an American citizen may sponsor a foreign, same-sex spouse for permanent resident status.


No, marrying a U.S. citizen does not automatically convey permanent residency or citizenship. The proper procedures for obtaining resident status will need to be followed by the non-citizen, the issue of a criminal record may play a significant part in a decision by the USICS. (www.usics.gov)


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


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


Yes, If a non Legal resident marries a Legal resident,he or she are judged to be Legal resident of that country. They can have their Spouse VISA.So that can make them live happily and together forever.


The answer is no. But the children born from this marriage will automatically become US citizens. The spouse of US citizen will be eligible to become US citizen after he/she (the non-US citizen) stay in US for a minimum of 3 years as a Permanent Resident.

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


Not without becoming a legal alien. Which usually requires returning to their home country and applying for a marriage visa.


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


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.




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.


They will become an American citizen



No. There is no longer "automatic citizenship via marriage". You must apply for citizenship under the proscribed laws. You may however qualify for 2A Family Prefererence category, which shortens the time (a little).



Do make sure that it is a legitimate ceremony and marriage certificate. But yes they can, as long as that American citizen is not a felon, is able to adequately support that spouse financially (affidavit of support) and when they come back to the U.S. gets down to the business of filing their spouse's paperwork.


Sure, there are no restrictions on marriage. However, being married does not automatically change one's visa status or citizenship. Make sure you understand the requirements to become a legal resident so that you are not separated from your spouse by INS!
