FAQ: How can my husband does he automatically become a US citizen?

Question; After marrying an United States citizen, does a Non-U.S. citizen automatically becomes an American citizen? I am wondering if an alien from a different country marries an U.S. citizen does the alien automatically becomes an American citizen? I would like to know if a foreigner marries a legal American citizen does the foreigner automatically becomes a legal American citizen too? Thank you for your consideration.

Answer; Non-US citizens, aliens and foreigners are all treated equally under U.S. immigration law. All have to receive “permanent residency” before they are eligible to apply for U.S. Citizenship. There are different paths towards these goals depending on which country they are from and how they entered the U.S.
