You would first have to apply for a green card then three years later apply for citizenship based on marriage. This process will most likely take you about four years.

You don't actually have to have a baby if you're married to a US citizen. If married to a US citizen for 3 years, I believe you automatically have a green card. If you have a baby, I think it would be a little quicker to get the green card. It happened to my brother, then she divorced him.

IF YOU MARRY A MEXICAN, HE DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY BECOME AN AMERICAN CITIZEN. THE ONLY THING THAT MARRAIGE ESTABLISHES WHEN YOU MARRY A MEXICAN IS PERMANENT RESIDENT ALIEN STATUS FOR HIM. HE CAN ONLY KEEP THIS IF YOU REMAIN MARRIED FOR A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF YEARS. IF HE WISHES TO BECOME A CITIZEN, HE MUST TAKE THE TEST AND PASS. I married an illegal Mexican immigrant and I was told by an immigration officer that he can be deported until we have been approved for a visa number, but that some immigration officers will be lenient if the immigrant has papers with him showing that the process is underway.

Once you become a citizen, you can file for divorce at any time.

This is to prove that you didn't get married to evade immigrations laws.

Can a US immigrant marry his fiance from Philippines?

Depends. As long as you are a legal United States citizen, you can get married legally to another person. However, since your fiance is from the Philippines, she is considered an illegal alien. If you plan on bringing her into the U.S., she will need a visa, with an I-94 stamp, and she would need to go through the process of becoming an American citizen. The marriage is not legally binding if one partner is illegal. it all depends on where you get your marriage license and everything. Visit the U.S. government website to see how she can become a citizen after you guys get married. (Yes, you have to wait until after you get married to pretty much have her become a citizen--it's very difficult to get married to an illegal immigrant here)
