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.

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.

You must immediately apply for a permanent resident status.

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

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

Yes, but it will require the person to return to/wait inCanada for a spousal visa to become available. That should take about 2 1/2 years when married to a permanent resident. When marrying a permanent resident, you CANNOT stay inside the US while waiting for a spouse visa/green card during that time.

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

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.

Yes, all persons who are not "natural born" US citizens are subject to deportation when it applies. Even naturalized citizens can be deported, although the process differs depending upon the amount of time the person has held permanent resident or citizenship status.

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

User Avatar

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.

User Avatar

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

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

From what i understand the U.S. legal resident would first have to become a naturalized citizen and then he could begin the petition of asking for his wife. I do not believe that a person w/ a green card, even if valid, can ask for an immigrant. Actually, a permanent resident can file a petition for his or her spouse, but from what INS told me, it takes 2-3 years at best to get the petition approved. However, if the permanent resident became a naturalized citizen first, it would only take 6 months or so to get the same paperwork approved. >>short answer>>> get you citizenship first, then petition for her,.. it's faster>>

If the marriage was purely for the purpose of obtaining a Green card and if the USCIS comes to know of it, then the Green card will be revoked. The person will get to lose the legal permanent resident status.

When a male of legal age marries another male of legal age, it is called a marriage.

The person who marries the US citizen should first become a permanent resident before moving on to file citizenship application. They must have maintained the status of a permanent resident for at least 3 yrs. So only after this time can they apply for their citizenship. It is not easy to get US citizenship. The only advantage of applying for citizenship after marrying a US citizen is that the continuous residence criteria gets reduced to 3yrs.

The Mexican must apply for Resident Status and after 3 years of being a Resident Alien they can apply for Citizenship.

User Avatar

No, you have to wait till your spouse will get US citizenship or if you are working for a company and they ned your skills they can employ an immigration lawyer who can get one on for you.

User Avatar

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. 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).

User Avatar

The person can file for permanent residency, but being married does not assure that it will be granted. Even marrying a U.S. citizen does not guarantee that the spouse will be granted citizenship, permanent status or not be deported.

No. When you are born an American you are always an American unless you decide to take the citizenship of another country.
