  • possibly. but maybe not. you should call and talk to a lawyer. just ask over the phone what the law is around that. i am so sorry. i hope it works out for you. :(

  • 've always been under the impression that if a person that doesnt have citizenship in the U.S. and they were to marry an American that they qualify to become a citizen too?
    If your baby is an American Citizen the baby can stay here. Why don't you just apply for citizenship?

  • If your married to a US citizen you are on now..... At least as far as I know, I think you will be one no matter what if you are married for so long.... there are places for free you can call just look it up. GL!

  • Yes, your husband will gain custody of the child and you will be deported.
    Even if you are caught in the US without citizenship, you can be deported without a divorce.

  • I don't know the answer, but you should talk to a lawyer. You might be able to get help from Legal Aid. I don't know if you have to be a citizen for that. Google "community health centers" in your area. Sometimes they have a free lawyer who comes to talk to people about family issues.

    Do you want to become a citizen? Maybe there is a program that will help you pay for the ESL classes. Good luck!
