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

A foreigner who marries a Mexican doesn't automatically get Mexican nationality, but they can apply for Mexican nationality after only 2 years instead of waiting longer. For example, a foreigner (not married to a Mexican) who applies for Mexican nationality on the basis of Mexican residence has to wait 5 years.




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



No, it is very difficult for Mexicans to become American citizens


No. citizenship has to do with where you were born, and where your parents were born. It has nothing to do with marriage.


US citizenship cannot be lost by her becoming a Mexican citizen. Mexico would control whether she becomes a Mexican citizen. US has no involvement in the process.


Yes, regardless of the alien's status. He can adjust his status and apply for citizenship once he or she marries a U.S. citizen.


No you do not.The only person that doesn't have citezenship in America is the person from overseas.Another answer:Marriage to a foreign citizen does not affect one's own citizenship. If the new spouse wishes to obtain US citizenship, the laws of the home country determine whether or not that individual either gets dual citizenship or loses the original citizenship. For example, if a bride from New Zealand marries an American, she may gain US citizenship and retain her New Zealand citizenship. If a Chinese bride seeks US citizenship, though, China will not permit her to retain her Chinese citizenship.


Not automatically. They have to apply for a green card and then apply for Naturalization.


Nothing changes unless the couple chooses to apply for a change of citizenship. That may depend on where they choose to live and work.

No. The spouse would have to naturalize in France to become a french citizen. Children of this couple, who are born in the US, are dual French-US citizens at birth. The process for "recognizing" french citizenship is complicated, however.


If a Mexican man marries an American girl he can apply for a green card, which gives him legal residency. Over time, if he fulfills all the requirements, he can eventually become a US citizen if he wishes to do so, but it is not automatic.

Even if a foreigner marries an American citizen they do not automatically gain US citizenship. There is a very detailed, lengthy, process in which both the foreigner and US spouse must go through in order for the foreigner to gain citizenship. This process can take years and may be denied by the end of it all.
