Your application for a student visa is handled separately from your marriage application. If your marriage application is approved, then that will override your student visa application. If, however, it is not approved then your student application still remains in affect. Please note that in your marriage application there is a question which asks, "Have you ever filed for ANY other types of visas?", which must be answered correctly otherwise you will be subject to denial for filing a false application!

If you are a US Citizen, legally divorced or widowed, you can request permanent residency for your spouse, regardless of how you gained your citizenship.

Yes. The foreign national would not yet be eligible to apply for permanent residency therefore divorcing his or her current spouse and remarrying would not affect his or her status. Be advised, that it may create difficulty when the application for permanent residency is made.

I am a US citizen and permanent resident of Ukraine. Usually, the foreign citizen must marry a Ukrainian citizen and reside in the country. After two years of marriage, an application for residency can be made at the district OVIR office. This gives most of the benefits of citizenship, except voting rights. It also obviates the need to repeatedly obtain Ukrainian visas.

A permanent residency is a step towards becoming a US citizen. A permanent resident can purchase a home and own property

You must be 21 years old to apply for your parents. Simply fill out application for residency for your mother with the IRS.

You need to be a permanent resident card (green card) holder to be eligible to apply for citizenship. In normal circumstances, an immigrant should be a permanent resident for five years to be eligible for citizenship. If you are married to a US citizen, then it is three years of permanent residency.It is that you have to be in marriage to a U.S citizen and should be living with that U.S citizen for the past 3 three years of your permanent residency for the criteria to be applicable to you. Current regulations do allow a person to start the application process ninety days before they fulfill their residency requirement.

Yes. The child will be a US citizen. The parent will need to apply for permanent residency.

A Permanent Resident is a non-citizen within a country other than one which they have citizenship for. Permanent Residency grants them all rights to live in that country for as long as they desire, with certain conditions. They do not have all rights of a citizen, such as voting and representation, however; Residency is normally the last step towards gaining citizenship.

Anyone who is a permanent resident of the US is not a citizen yet. So if you are truly a Mexican citizen, you are required to have a visa if traveling to Canada. If you were to become a citizen of the US, however, then no visa would be required.

No, marriage to US citizen does not automatically allow a non-citizen to become a permanent resident or citizen of the US.Marriage does entitle the non-citizen to apply for US permanent residency, provided they can show they will be living in the US. For example, if a US citizen married a German citizen, and they continue to live in Germany, the german citizen cannot apply for a US permanent resident visa. If, at some time later, the couple decide to move back to the US, the German citizen can at that time apply for a permanent residency visa. Such marriage-based permanent resident visas are almost always granted once the couple shows proper residency intent (and, shows that the marriage is not a sham or fraud one).Any non-citizen holding a US permanent residency visa can apply for US citizenship via the nationalization process. The key requirements of the citizenship process are:Be a permanent resident for at least 5 years (or 3 if married to a US citizen)Reside continuously (except for short-duration excursions) in the US for that period of timeHave a clean criminal record, or obtain a specific waiver from an immigration judgeAttend proper citizenship classes

You would need to get married in Denmark and then file for Permanent Residency here in the US. You can get an application by calling INS.

Yes but you do need to file outside of the US for permanent residency.

In order to become an American citizen, a person should first become 18 yrs old. Next is becoming a legal permanent resident - getting a green card. He/ she has to then maintain the required continuous residency status and permanent residency status. Becoming a US citizen is not a one-day process but a lengthy one.

You can stay legally, if you have started the process for your permanent residency and your application for change if status has been approved by the INS.

User Avatar

No, both my marriages were like the one you described. They will get their residency regardless.

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

User Avatar

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

An immigrant must be legally present within the US when marrying a US citizen to be eligible to be sponsored by their citizen spouse for permanent residency. Persons illegally within the US do not qualify for permanent residency under any circumstances other than being certified asylee or refugee status.

You must immediately apply for a permanent resident status.
