If you are a us citizen and you where married once and filled for permanent residency and now you get married again and want to ask for permanent recidency for your spouse can you?
No, marriage to US citizen does not automatically allow a non-citizen to become a permanent resident or citizen of the US. Marriage does entitle the non-citizen to apply for US permanent residency, provided they can show they will be living in the US. For example, if a US citizen married a German citizen, and they continue to live in Germany, the german citizen cannot apply for a US permanent resident visa. If, at some time…
A Permanent Resident is a non-citizen within a country other than one which they have citizenship for. Permanent Residency grants them all rights to live in that country for as long as they desire, with certain conditions. They do not have all rights of a citizen, such as voting and representation, however; Residency is normally the last step towards gaining citizenship.
No. An incarcerated person could not sponsor a foreign national for permanent residency nor citizenship. FYI, marrying a US citizen does not automatically confer permanent resident or citizenship status on a foreign national. Likewise, an illegal immigrant is not eligible for permanent residency regardless of his or her marital status. Unlawfully present individuals are required to voluntarily leave the US and return to their country of origin or face detainment and deportation.
If a US citizen marries an illegal can they become a citizen or a legal resident even though they have a criminal record?

If both parents are non-citizen American Indians is their child born on American soil automatically a U. S. citizen?
Yes, the child born on U.S. soil, in the air or onboard a U.S. plane becomes an U.S. citizen automatically. It does not, however, give the non-citizen parents a right to stay (with the citizen child) in the U.S. Without proper documentation they will be deported to their homeland. At the age of 18 the child can choose to apply for permanent residency for them (so-called Green Card).

I am a US citizen and permanent resident of Ukraine. Usually, the foreign citizen must marry a Ukrainian citizen and reside in the country. After two years of marriage, an application for residency can be made at the district OVIR office. This gives most of the benefits of citizenship, except voting rights. It also obviates the need to repeatedly obtain Ukrainian visas.
It depends on the extent of time you have been a resident. If you are permanent resident, you will not lose your visa. However, if you are on a work permit issued due to marriage to a US Citizen or if you are on a temporary resident permit (this is given while awaiting the permanent card), these can be revoked and the person sent back to their country of origin

What will happen if an illegal immigrant marry a us citizen and divorce before filing for a permanent residence?
Yes. When a non-citizen marries a U.S. citizen, s/he can then apply for US permanent residency. It is important to note that you cannot marry someone solely to obtain a green card as that is considered fraud (though, for the most part, it is the government's burden to show fraud, not your burden to show it isn't). A Canadian citizen married to a US citizen should have a simple time getting the required permanent residency…
What is necessary for a U.S. citizen and a Mexican citizen who already has a permanent residency card in the U.S. to get married in the U.S.?
If you are married to a US citizen and you are a permanent resident do you still have to take the citizenship test?
It depends on the exact circumstances and the residency status of the various people involved. For example, if a US citizen marries a foreigner, they don't automatically lose their US citizenship. If that foreigner is later deported, the citizen is legally entitled to remain in the US. However, if the wife and kids are not US citizens but entered as dependents of a permanent resident who was later deported, the answer would be different (again…
If a person holding a US residency card marries a US citizen does that qualify them for US citizenship?
pretty sure it does No, marrying a U.S. citizen does not automatically confer permanent residence status nor the assurance of being granted citizenship to a foreign national. It will change the priority level assigned to the foreign spouse's application for citizenship. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, http://www.uscis.gov
Marrying a Canadian citizenship does not automatically make you a Canadian citizen. You would still have to go through the entire process that an unmarried "Alien" would have to go through. That is, apply and obtain Permanent Residency (PR) and then go through the Citizenship Application. Ref: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/faq/citizenship/cit-become-faq03.asp
