If you are 17 years old and an illegal alien in the US how do you become a legal citizen without marrying a legal US citizen?
You can be adopted by a US citizen. You can be sponsored by an immediate relative that is a US citizen or a permanent green card holder. Marrying a U.S. citizen does not automatically confer citizenship or permanent resident status on the new spouse. Adoption is only allowed if the child is 16-years or younger has been certified an orphan by his or her country of origin and has been granted an IR4 visa for entrance into the United States.
