In the courthouse, church, wherever. Just please be sure, unlike I was, that you are willing to lose all of the rights (which you currently have)that this immigrant does not have. Don't listen to people who say "why would you?" because anyone who marries only truly knows their own heart, and illegal immigrants deserve committed relationships just like everyone else. My question is ... why would you? It's best to go by the book on this because the United States and Canada have strict laws. With terrorism on the high, security very tight, it doesn't matter what nationality you are, one should abide by the strict laws enforced because they are there to not only protect you, but everyone. If you are caught breaking the law in this area, then you could be in for a very bumpy ride with the law. Here's something to think about. It is a noted fact that aliens from other countries are trying to marry people in the Western countries so they can live there. Some really just want to come to a safe place (is there any such country left such as this) and others are using this method for other reasons. Whatever reasons they have, they are using you to get where THEY want, and you will be the loser in most cases. If you know this persons reasoning as to why they want to come into the country and you do it anyway, then you are letting down not only yourself, but a lot of people out there. I'd really think about this one more clearly! If this person is a relative and wants to join their family in your country, tell them to go through the proper channels. If you are come into the country illegally you will live looking over your shoulder, and even though you can get fake I.D. now, eventually the law will catch up to you. Marcy If the person has the proper identification required by the state in which the marriage is taking place then no extraordinary action is needed. Acceptable ID would be a driver's license, state ID, "green card", many states also accept a passport even if it is not still valid. However, marrying a U.S. citizen will not automatically confer permanent resident or citizen status upon an individual. Anywhere. He/she just need identification that is valid. Like a passport from his/her country or a matricula consular.
