Can I apply for Canadian citizenship I was born in Canada and parents are Pakistani currently 18 years old?

If you are born in Canada and your parents were not diplomats at the time of your birth, then you are already a Canadian citizen by law. You just need to get your birth certificate from the province in which you were born.Although, if you opt to be a Canadian citizen, you may lose your Pakistani citizenship. If you are not sure whether or not this will happen, ask the Pakistani embassy if you live abroad or contact the responsible authorities in Pakistan to find out.

You are a us citizen your fiance is still a UK citizen he is in the UK now and does not know if he will be able to become a permanent citizen in the us what will he need to do to become a us citizen?

It's very important to handle the steps with international marriages carefully and in the proper order; even though you are married, it could happen that he wouldn't be allowed into the U.S. unless you do everything correctly. It is essential that you talk to an immigration lawyer in the U.S. who can make sure that you do everything properly and in the right order. Do this before you get married.

Can a US citizen retiree get permanent resident status in Canada?

Only if the retiree is married to a U.S. citizen. A person cannot simply enter to live in the U.S. based on retirement. There is no visa category for retirement. The only legal methods of entry are through citizen marriage, employment, or asylum.

What will happen to a Canadian citizen if she wants to raise her American baby in the USA?

You will have no problem except for the having "no papers" part and being able to be here as a legal resident. You might want to look into becoming a legal resident if you were previously married to the baby's parent. Otherwise you will not be able to apply for residency under current laws until your baby is 21 years old. Good Luck.

What happen when you married a non us citizen on visiting visa?

If you're living in the US and you are a US citizen, you can apply for a CR-1/IR-1 spouse visa. That will allow your spouse to live in the US permanently (at least as long as they're married to you). After three years, assuming you stay married, they can apply for naturalization and become a US citizen. If you are not a US citizen but are living in the US on a permanent resident visa ("Green card"), you can still apply for a spouse visa, but it will be an F class instead. It will take longer to get approval for it because those are lower priority than those for US citizens. If you are not a US citizen and you are also not on a permanent resident visa (you don't have a "green card"), then nothing happens. You'd have to find a way to stay legally or run the risk of deportation if/when your temporary visa ends.
