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?
