Is there a law that says a us citizen married to an illegal immigrant for a year that the immigrant can then apply for green card?
No he cannot
Yes they can apply - there will be tough questions though.
If you are married, you can apply for divorce.
Not immediately. The legal husband/wife will first have to file a petition for the illegal immigrant to start the process of becoming a citizen. Once the illegal immigrant goes through the process and becomes a citizen, they can apply for a license. There are a few state exceptions that allow illegal immigrants to apply for a license.
yes but you have to do it for your spouse
If an illegal immigrant overstayed his visa for 4 years and then married a US citizen can he apply for change of status without the risk of being deported?
Marrying a US citizen does not automatically make the other person a citizen. Spouses of US citizens can and do get deported everyday. Send him back home and apply for him while he is not in the U.S.
You can marry anywhere your hearts desire! After you get married the Illegal Resident needs to apply for Permanent residency. You can have the application sent to you just by calling them up (they have computer automated service also).
Can an illegal resident in the US marry a US citizen and apply for citizenship without being arrested?
If the immigrant is a true illegal (i.e. entered the country illegally/without inspection) even a marriage to a US citizen wont prevent him from facing possible deportation. Moreover, an immigrant CANNOT apply for citizenship, they must first apply for legal residency
you have to be married for a certain length of time I believe. Is it worth it? Most of us are complete jerks. First off the immigrant has to have come in legally, if they came in Illegally marriage can't help. You have to be married for at least 2 years, after 2 years you can apply for citizenship.
The citizen spouse has no recourse to the action as US immigration laws no longer allow a citizen spouse to apply for residency for an illegal immigrant spouse. The Mexican national will have to leave the US and file under the required USCIS regulations for reentry.
No. Persons who are considered to be illegally within the US cannot apply for resident status even if they are considered legally married to a US citizen. Federal law applies to immigration issues not state laws, so, it is conceivable for an illegal immigrant to legally marry a US citizen but that does not give she or he US legal status or the right to apply for such.
A foreign national who is unlawfully present within the US cannot apply for permanent residency or citizenship unless her or she qualifies as a refugee or asylee. Due to new immigration reform and enforcement, marriage to a US citizen by an illegal immigrant will no longer result in the citizen spouse being able to apply for residency for the immigrant spouse. All foreign nationals unlawfully present within the US are now subject to deportation with… Read More
If an illegal immigrant in Mexico and an us citizen get married in Mexico can he or she apply for a green card?
yes, they can apply for a green card any time realy. the problem is that it helps to know someone here who can sponsor them with $$$ to get them to apply. that pretty much says that they will watch out for them, and that the government knows where to find the resident. this is how my cousins came to america.
If you are a permanent resident and have been married to an American citizen since 1998 are you considered an American citizen?
No, You can only become a citizen if you apply for you citizenship through immigration. Being a legal resident and married to an American citizen can and will not change your immigrant statics unless you go through the right process.
You want to marry an illegal immigrant who is not divorced but her husband is in another country How do you marry her?
The illegal immigrant should go back to his or her home country and complete the divorce with his or her spouse. Then you should either get married in that country and apply for a spouse visa, or go visit that country and upon returning apply for a fiance visa and get married in the US after the fiance visa is granted.
Yes you can but you need to do it soon, you will need to answer lots of questions for how and why you entered the country illegally but they should let you in the country
You are an illegal alien and you are married to a US citizen and you have a child if you apply to be a resident how long do you have to leave the country?
your a weirdo
If a us citizen marries a Mexican illegal immigrant in the us and has 20 years of deportation can he still get the green card and become a resident of the US?
to my knowledge, if you as an American citizen are LEGALLY married to an illegal, all that you have to do is go to your local immigration office and apply for his residency. it is better if you are married in the u.s. before applying. if you guys married in the u.s. so much the better. make sure that he does not have a criminal record or that is it. if you married outside the… Read More
I believe you used to be able to marry an illegal immigrant and they would not have to leave but with the changes in federal laws for national securit I believe that has changed now and they would have to apply for citizenship like everyone else
i married a illegal Mexican and the only thing i did was go to the court house to apply for a marriage lic..i had all his information they did not ask for a ss# and i paid $20.00 and got the license, he didn't need to go there at all, three days later we got married at the court house..this was in the state of Michigan.

What are the steps a US citizen and an illegal alien should take in order to get married for the alien to obtain citizenship?
First you have to get married and get legal. The best and most recommended way is for the U.S. citizen to file for a fiance(e) visa for the immigrant first. If you go directly to the USCIS, tell them that your fiance(e) is still in his/her home country and not already in the U.S. illegally. Then when he/she enters with his/her fiance(e) visa, you, the U.S. citizen have 90 days to get married. After getting… Read More
Yes, but only if you apply for a green card.
No of course not because just because she/he is underage and illeagal doesnt mean new rules apply to him/her .
If you are a man who has married and illegal Mexican and had children what happens when you get divorced?
You're children are legal citizens, and your ex-spouse may apply for immigrant status.
First the illegal immigrant should apply for a Visa to become a citizen. Then they should start looking for work to save money. You should apply for your business resellers permit and then contact a watch company on how to be an authorized dealer. THEN you can sell any watch to the citizen...

Does an illegal immigrant become a permanent resident after they have been married for a year or longer to a U.S. citizen who is in the military?
Check with the JAG(Judge Advocates Office) office at your hubbys duty station. * No, the citizen spouse will have to apply for permanent residency for the foreign national spouse under USCIS laws. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, http://www.uscis.gov
You're not a legal citizen, but if you're married to one you will need to file a petition and apply for citizenship, which takes a while. Very risky.
You cannot sponsor someone who is already here illegally. You CAN sponsor them if they go home and apply for entry with a sponsor who will provide a home and/or a job.
What do you need to do if you are a US Citizen who just got married to an illegal immigrant and would like travel outside US for your honeymoon?
You've got a real problem. If you leave the country, there should be no expectation that your spouse can legallyreturn to the US. You would have to consult with an immigration attorney to see what needs to be done to get the spouse a green card. They may have to travel back to their country of citizen ship and re-apply to immigrate. If they are in fact illegal, they may have to wait 3 to… Read More
Can you and your boyfriend get married if he is an illegal immigrant while he is in Mexico and you are in the US?
Answer No. He has to apply to your Immigration Department for a visa. Even if you went to Mexico and married there he would still be considered illegal by American Authorities. You would be wise to contact your Department of Immigration and find out what they say.
Your best option would be to leave the country, apply for a marriage visa, re-enter legally on the marriage visa and then get married.
he will stay American citizen....he has to apply to become a Canadian citizen or his wife has to apply for him and will have to tell the court that she has married him
If a person is married but never took the USA citizenship test do that still make them a US citizen?
No, they were never a citizen; marriage to a US citizen does not automatically make you a citizen. Marriage to a US citizen allows you the a reason to apply citizenship; of which the test is a part of the process. The USA citizenship test is only one of the steps to becoming a citizen; it does not grant you citizenship if you pass it. You still have to apply for citizenship and get through… Read More

Most foreigners can obtain a Mexican passport if they move to Mexico with an immigrant visa and live there for four years (2 years if married to a Mexican citizen). Then one can apply for Mexican citizenship and passport.
If they're in the country legally, they should apply for US citizenship.
The simple answer is, NO, at least not right away. An illegal alien gains very little from marriage to a permanent resident. You cannot adjust status to permanent resident inside the U.S. You would have to leave the country to apply for an immigrant visa based upon the marriage.
you would have to apply for a citizen ship. which requires a citizenship test and a lot of other aspects
The same as if she was a US citizen. You have to apply in court.
If a Illegal alien is married to a U.S citizen and has U.S citizen children but was deported due to mistomener charges can they come back into the U.S and then apply for visa?
A visa has to be applied for before returning to the country.
Not just because of the marriage. They will have to return to their own country and apply for a visa, a process which can take many years if they were deported. If they leave the US on their own and then apply to for a marriage visa, it is much better and a shorter process.
You must move to Mexico with your spouse and live there for two years with an immigrant visa, then you can apply for Mexican citizenship. You can have both a Mexican and a US passport and be a dual citizen. If you were not married to a Mexican citizen, you would have to live there for four years.
Your marriage ill be investigated when you apply for citizen ship, and if they find that you just married for citizenship, you will get deported and your spouse ill go to jail.
Yes, if they are legal, and the male is a legal immigrant. There are immigrants that are illegal. that does not apply to them, as they themselves could not legally apply for child support.
If an illegal alien married a citizen to obtain legal status and 7 years later wants a divorce can his status be revoked and he deported?
I am not expert, but i believe that most immigrants (if not all of them) who married a US citizen and, because of that, got a greencard do (yes) get to keep their green card. So ladies (and gentleman) be sure that your immigrant fiance/ee marries you out of love, and not that "card." >>>>The immigrant gets to keep the green card, but cannot apply for citizenship, unless the US citizen was abusive towards the… Read More
If an immigrant wanted to apply for a US visitor visa can he apply for that visa in the country he is currently residing or does it have to be in the country he was born at?
he has to apply in the country of which he is a citizen: eg: a German citizen living in Denmark must apply at the German consolate to obtain a Visa
Leave the USA and apply for one from your home country.
No. They still have to apply for citizenship through the immigration office. Even if they are married the application can be denied.
