    Default Marrying Somebody Whose Citizenship Was Revoked

    Can someone please help me understand and gain knowledge about this process? My boyfriend of 4 years and I want to get married. He came to the US with his mother when he was 4. He has a SSN due to the fact that he got his citizenship as a child. When he was 18 he got a ticket for driving without a license. He began paying the ticket off, but didn't finish. It's my understanding that because he did not pay his ticket off in the time allotted they revoked his citizenship. We have 2 children together if that helps. What steps need tO be taken for this to happen, and will he attain citizenship through our marriage?

    That doesn't make such sense - not paying a ticket is not a reason for revocation.

    If citizenship was truly revoked, it was for a LOT more than not paying a ticket.

    Because he didn't pay his ticket he was unable to renew his green card

    That's not the same as revoking citizenship.

    If he had a green card, he wasn't a citizen, and failure to renew your green card is not the same as having it revoked.

    Let's start again


    A green-card means he is a permanent resident - NOT a citizen. They are two different things. But again, not paying a traffic ticket is not enough to have his residency revoked.

    There's either a lot more to the story, or someone somewhere is getting very confused as to their status.

    Darn..I had the reply box open for too long before I saw your response.

    This is correct - failure to renew is a minor issue. It doesn't mean you're out of status - just that you have an expired card.

    (It's the card which expires, not the status, incidentally)

    Ok so I'm the confused one I guess he doesn't have a green card how do we go about getting it or is it a lost cause now since its been 8 years....But he has a real SSN, can people with green cards attain a SSN or can only citizens? If only citizens can receive them, then he is a citizen...

    I'm a green-card holder. I have a SSN.



    (In other words - I'm not a US citizen, though I've been living here legally for many, many years - I have my green-card, state ID/license and SSN)

    If he's a green-card holder, all he needs to do is file to renew his card. Have him speak with a local attorney if he thinks he can't do this himself.

    There is helpful info right here
