It could take years INS Laws are always changing and it also depends on how they enteredthe country. and if they have ever been in trouble with the law for any thing.or if they are intiled to a waiver. but waivers are not all ways much help they can still be deported.keep copies of all paper work, money orders,letters I mean everything.when you go to INS you may want a lawyer.remember INS are not working for you they work against you.they lose paper work all the time, trust me! I know and then you have to pay for refiling. INS has the right to post pone as long as they want, and there is nothing you can do about that.be prepared it a long and stressful system.If your not a member of a church then become a member. do valunteer work for your community,do whatever you can to make you a good asset to stay here.It's not over till it's over.
only if the person marries a US citizen
Yes. If the illegal immigrant marries a citizen, they can become a citizen from that.
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.
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.
No rights gained, save for the ability to legalize your residency status if the immigrant entered the country LEGALLY.
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.
He can be arrested as he is a illegal immigrant and he has got married before waiting for a year aftr getting divorced.
Yes, but the illegal immigrant must seek a lawyer to help them become a citizen. The illegal may even have to return to their native country and await citzenship rights to the U.S. but just because an illegal marries a citizen does not give them a free pass. It may however, speed up the process.
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.
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
no no WHAT DO YOU THINK??!?!?!
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.
No if the marriage is only for becoming legal. The person who marries an illegal to make them legal is breaking federal laws, can be arrested, and serve prison time. The illegal will be deported.
The illegal immigrant will most likely be deported to whence they came.
If they're in the country legally, they should apply for US citizenship.
Check with the laws in your state before getting married, but in most states, anyone who marries a United States citizen can become a US citizen, and thus be legal.
nothing she tills has to become a citizen
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.
Being married would not change the fact she is an illegal alien. She could still be sent back to her country of origin.
Yes, they do. Why would an immigrant need to talk to INS about a marriage? Immigrant means they are already residing in the US legally as a immigrant.
No, she is not. She will be allowed to remain in the US with her spouse and children, but she will have to apply for citizenship separate from her marriage. The US citizen REMAINS a US citizen. The immigrant remains an immigrant and must follow the legal path to resident immigrant status, and from there to citizenship. Marriage is not a free pass to residency or citizenship.
Jail for the citizen, deportation for the illegal alien.
Yes, it doesn't matter where they came from,or what color they are, if they married & they love one another, they should live together, grow old together, live their life together, forever & ever.
