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.

No rights gained, save for the ability to legalize your residency status if the immigrant entered the country LEGALLY.

An illegal immigrant would not gain legal status by marrying a felon because of a felon is not recognized as a citizen of his or her country and it is the same with the illegal immigrant he or she is not recognized as a legal immigrant. If such a union exist then there would be severe penaltiies for both couple,a deportation and even more years in prison An illegal immigrant would not gain legal status by marrying a felon because of a felon is not recognized as a citizen of his or her country and it is the same with the illegal immigrant he or she is not recognized as a legal immigrant.

Unless you can attain refugee or asylum status, it is impossible for an illegal immigrant to attain citizenship with current U.S. laws.

If the 17 year old has parental permission. Note that will not change the status of the illegal immigrant, who can still be deported.

One illegal immigrant is able to marry another in the United States. However, it does not change the immigration status and actually could lead to deportation because of the paperwork filed with the state.

your best bet would be to ask the department of immigration and naturalization

Yes you can- but remember that the ability to marry an illegal is SEPARATE from whether or not that illegal will ultimately be able to get legal status due to that marriage.

Answer 1:Nothing. He/she will still be a legal immigrant.Answer 2:The above is true, if the status of "legal immigrant" was not dependent on the marriage, or his sponsorship. The immigrant concerned should seek advice from an attorney trained in these matters, or an immigrant aid group.

You cannot refinance a mortgage if you don't already have a mortgage, so how did you get a mortgage if you are an illegal immigrant with no social security number? You should attain legal status first.

An immigrant who is unlawfully within the US is not eligible for permanent residence status (green card).

The immigrant's status might come into play. Legal? Undocumented (illegal)?

No, marriage to a US citizen does not mean the foreign national will be granted permanent residency or citizenship status.

He wouldn't want to leave the country and have his papers checked, he might not be allowed back. And marriage does not change the status of an illegal immigrant.

No, an illegal immigrant could never change status to a citizen, he would have to become a legal permanent resident first (LPR). But in any case, just making $10k/month wont allow an illegal immigrant to become a LPR

NO, you have to have 2 forms of identification, and if you are illegal you are not getting one anyway. The Answer no is not truly correct. There is a couple of ways an individual could get a SS Card while being Illegal immigrant status. I personally know of a person who has one because he came to visit his father before his 18 birthday and his father had one issued to him so that he could be claimed as a dependent. Now he was supposed to return to Mexico Once he reached the age of 18 but he never did and has been working and filing Taxes with that number issued when he was a child. His father never completed his immigration so he is here illegal.
