The resident would need to wait until becoming a US citizen until filing for residency for the illegal alien spouse.
No, marrying a US citizen or a permanent resident does not grant the illegal immigrant legal status regardless of whether there is a child involved or not.
Not without becoming a legal alien. Which usually requires returning to their home country and applying for a marriage visa.
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.
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.
only if the person marries a US citizen
Jail for the citizen, deportation for the illegal alien.
No. Marrying a US citizen does not automatically confer permanent resident or citizenship status on any foreign national.
The illegal foreign national will still be required to follow the prescribed USCIS procedures. This could mean the person will be required to leave the U.S. and then apply for a visa for reentrance. A foreign national whether illegal or not is not automatically granted permanent residency or citizenship status by marriage to a U.S. citizen. Marriage will sometimes (but not always) change the priority status given to an applicant's request. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, http://www.uscis.gov
You must immediately apply for a permanent resident status.
No. Any non-citizen who intends to reside permanently in the US, whether or not married to a citizen, must obtain permanent resident status.
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.
to my knowledge, if you as an American citizen are LEGALLY married to an illegal, all that you have to do is go to your local immigration office and apply for his residency. it is better if you are married in the u.s. before applying. if you guys married in the u.s. so much the better. make sure that he does not have a criminal record or that is it. if you married outside the u.s. what i would do is to marry again in the u.s. so that immigration will "recognize" said marriage, but yes, as a u.s. citizen, applying for your spouse is one of your privileges and rights for being a u.s. citizen...good luck
No, they would still have to apply for citizenship under the established laws and meet all requirements for becoming a U.S. citizen.
Yes. Effective June 26, 2013, an American citizen may sponsor a foreign, same-sex spouse for permanent resident status.
Yes. If the illegal immigrant marries a citizen, they can become a citizen from that.
yes it is true that they can gain permanent resident and a green card and possibly become a u.s. citizen them selves but will have to pay a hefty fine for illegally entering the country. but no jail time will come of it. only a fine.
If the alien entered illegally and did not have an I-601 approved, then the alien will always be subject to deportation
They're still an illegal immigrant. Mariiage alone does not grant US citizenship to an illegal alien. The formal process of citizenship must still be completed.
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.
Not immediately. The legal husband/wife will first have to file a petition for the illegal immigrant to start the process of becoming a citizen. Once the illegal immigrant goes through the process and becomes a citizen, they can apply for a license. There are a few state exceptions that allow illegal immigrants to apply for a license.
