If my father just became a US citizen about two months ago and I have been here since I was about four illegaly how long now that my father is a citizen will it take for me to become a perm resident?
When someone comes over to the United States it takes you 15 years in order to be eligible to become an American citizen and on top of that you have to take course, on being an American citizen and you have to pass the test at the end of the class.
the last post its completely WRONG. because it doesnt take 15 years to become an American citizen. if you have a green card it takes 5 years to apply to become a us citizen. If you join the armed forces like the army, navy, marines, airforce and coast guard it takes 6 months after you joined to apply for a us citizen paid by the government. i got my greencard in Jan 2007, joined the airforce in nov 2007 for 6 years, and in jul 2008 i became a US CITIZEN.
If you entered LEGAlly but became illegal, marriage to a citizen is the only way to become legal If you entered ILLEGALY to begin with, marriage to a citizen and a successful I-601 waiver granted by the US embassy at your home country would be the only way to become legal (this petition requires that you leave the US and return to your country of birth)

No she cannot. To become a US citizen you must be a US resident. Niether can you become a permenant resident for the same reason.

No, it doesn't make them a citizen if they marry one. I am a German citizen with a permanent resident green card and married a solider. It didn't make me a US citizen like most people would think.

No, marriage to a US citizen only reduces the required residency period for permanent residents who wish to become US citizens.

When a permanent resident with a valid green card marries a girl who is on a student visa what is the process for her to become a legal U.S. resident?
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… Read More

yes she can, but the process is long lasting 5 years . After she becomes a citizen , the process would be shorter - 2 years.
No, you do not. Marrying a US citizen never automatically makes you a citizen- however, it does speed up the process if you are trying to naturalize. Normally, a legal resident has to wait 5 years before they can apply for US citizenship; if a legal resident marries a US citizen, this is shortened to 3 years.
Any natural-born citizen, at least age 35 and a 14-year resident of the US.
