Marrying a citizen is not enough to get citizenship. If the marriage was done to get citizenship and there was no love or committment, the marriage is illegal.

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.

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.


what do you mean? specify..


No if the marriage is only for becoming legal. The person who marries an illegal to make them legal is breaking federal laws, can be arrested, and serve prison time. The illegal will be deported.




No, that just means that the child will be a US immigrant. The illegal immigrant will still be illegal.


No, an illegal immigrant cannot file. You must be a "legal" immigrant for any U.S. benefits.


It is legal in the United States for an illegal immigrant to marry a US citizen. Once the marriage is legal, the illegal immigrant becomes a legal immigrant and can stay in the US for the course of the marriage.


Very difficult to do so; go to government site and find out about illegal marriages.




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


If an immigrant scammed you to marry him that might be illegal and he will get sent back to his Country or go to jail, or even both.



Yes, a person can marry an illegal immigrant, but that doesnt mean that it will lead to the immigrant getting legal status.


Check with the laws in your state before getting married, but in most states, anyone who marries a United States citizen can become a US citizen, and thus be legal.



There is no such thing, if you're illegal you do not have legal permanent residency.


Not necessarily, although such cases are decided on individual basis according to the circumstances.

If we are talking about a modern country it is possible but difficult. Even not being an illegal immigrant it can be difficult to get legal dependency status. The reason being is that the country that you are trying to will try to prove that you are not marrying for the reason of getting citizenship. You will have to make an convincing argument. Also you cannot have a criminal record, so if you are caught being an illegal immigrant than you have just about screwed up your chances. It is harder to leave places such as the United States, Australia, England etc than it is to get in (without a legal visa)


Depends on your immigrant's status. You should marry for love anyway...


The same as those of the wife of a legal immigrant, you get half of whatever he has. You may get more if he doesn't understand English
