Ok long story short, i met this guy on an app he's 18 from italy and we've been talking for a while i guess you can say we are boyfriend and girlfriend, but he told me that he wanted to move to the US. He also asked me if i wanted to move in with him once i go to college (depending on what college i go to) and i said yes, but since he doesn't live in the us he has to get a lot of stuff to become a citizen. by the way we have skyped so he's no catfish lol. But i was wondering how long it would take for him to become a citizen and i also hear that if you marry an illigal immagrant that person could live in the us then get all the paper work done is that true if so how old do you have to be to marry an illegal immagrant? I just need some help and advice, what ever you think is something i should know please tell me i need all the help i could get.

I am amazed at the ignorance people are displaying when they tell you bullshit and call it fact. "If you marry a non-citizen in the US they will become a citizen." Bullshit. A citizen may file a form I-130 (Immigrant Petition) for a relative, which will get the relative a green card allowing them to live in the United States legally. You then have to live in the United States for five years to apply for citizenship. The following sites will answer your questions:
Please not that if you marry a person only to help them become a citizen, it is a federal felony with prison time.0

Well you're probably gonna be his source for a green card. Seeing how he has to fly over here first, he'll have apply for a visa way before he shows up at customs if he's going to live here over the extent of his visa. He could remain un-documented after his Visa expires but I think that takes a little bit of effort to maintain that status. Overall if he knows America history and trivia he can apply for something like dual-citizenship or American citizenship and that's it.0
