This question goes with the topic, or should I start a new thread? After marrying a Mexican citizen, how long does it take for you to get any job you want without restrictions? Like a green card thingy? I know you can become a citizen withing 3-5 years, and you can become a resident within a year. But what does that mean? When can you dump your spouse? and be free to work legally in any field in Mex? That last question was a joke!
