First, give him/her the $2,000 then marry the citizen. LOL Just a little joke! Apply for Alien Resident Status at INS (about $400). You will need to get Finger Prints for Investigation in your Country and US, Health Report from Registered INS Doctor for check of Health problems. Then just sit and wait for further instructions from INS.

Please answer in what states can a us citizen marry an illegal alien to get the green card

User Avatar

yes it is true that they can gain permanent resident and a green card and possibly become a u.s. citizen them selves but will have to pay a hefty fine for illegally entering the country. but no jail time will come of it. only a fine.

if u married an illegal alien u dont have a status so to speak, but u need to get him a green card, or he will get deported and whoever is married to him will have 15 yrs to life in jail for housing illegal aliens

If you went through the proper red tape then you should be an American Citizen or Canadian Citizen. If you didn't you are still considered an illegal alien. It isn't too late. Do that paperwork! Good luck Merry Christmas Marcy

If entry was ILLEGAL, and there was no form I-130 filed before April 2001, there is ABSOLUTELY NO CHANCE to get a green card, even with an anchor baby/marriage to a U.S. citizen.

Depends- there have been some cases where a LPR, when trying to become a citizen, has been found to lack moral character when married to an illegal.

User Avatar

I don't know for sure, but I think that it's harder and takes longer than if he/she married an actual US citizen.

Not from the USA, you must be a citizen in order to obtain a US passport. You can travel with your country of origen's passport and the green card as long as the passport is not expired Are there any exceptions to this rule, that is one must be a US Citizen in order to obtain a US passport?

User Avatar

No, you must be petitioned by a citizen. A: That's absolutely right. And you also need to wait for another year.

a) a visitor with a green card/visa,,, or b) an illegal alien,,,or c) a U.S. citizen,, in that order these days

First, When the INS catches the illegal alien, they WILL be deported. After paying a $1,000 fine, and waiting 3 to 5 years, the alien may then apply for a marriage visa, a green card, and citizenship in the US at the Embassy in his native Country. If the US Embassy determines that the alien had made illegal entry into the US "for the sole purpose of marrying to obtain citizenship" the applications will be refused. Also note that in the US most states now require proof of citizenship when applying for a marriage license.

Depending where was born.French father flying over Mexico land mother is Japanese the child legally Mexican.But usually parent will register birth in country they wish, dual.Until one thing occurs child swears that county X is his/hers or enters the military of that country will be citizenships of that one.I am American, wife Mexican. Son born in Mexico, no problem until he (not she) reaches 18 years old. By law must enter the military for training to many person can enter but NO ONE can leave Mexico until this service has been completed. At the end all males (in and out) of this service given certificate proving they did complete the requirements.Our son was in the USA never left due to him not being able to leave Mexico until reached the certification age.Life is interesting

You must obtain a work visa, a resident alien card (green card), and in many cases, become a citizen of the U.S.

User Avatar

No. A felony conviction disqualifies you from getting a resident alien card (aka green card); even a misdemeanor can, depending on the nature of the offense. Either case can lead to deportation, so tread carefully.

Get on a very long waiting list to get your green card. You wouldn't be an alien if you were legal

User Avatar

No. Alien would have to first make her/his stay legal before starting any immigration benefits.Case of domestic violence could be an advantage to start the ball rolling.

User Avatar

Then the alien loses the green card- if still outside the U.S.

User Avatar

No. You have to have made a lawful entry. Seek the advice of an immigration attorney immediately.

User Avatar

Yes, but if the brother is not 245(i) qualified, there is nothing the citizen brother can do to make illegal brother legal.

First of all, how did an illegal obtain a green card? Second, if you have not seen him or his daughter and she has forged your name on documents, contact the police and the INS. They will have his Alien Registration #,and should have his current address. If you have his Social Security #, then give that to the police also. Good Luck

Sometimes. The immigrant must follow the same procedures and apply for the green card. Often, they must voluntarily return to their home country to wait for their visa and permission to come through.

A non-permanent resident alien is an individual that holds employment in the United States. They are not a citizen and they do not have a green card.

User Avatar

In he USA the answer is yes but you will have to apply for a green card.

Being married would not change the fact she is an illegal alien. She could still be sent back to her country of origin.
