Do you have a fiancée or a new wife who's been ruled inadmissible to the U.S.? Perhaps you're wondering whether to marry here or in the other country? Or maybe you've married somebody abroad and want to bring them back here with you?

But many are caught, and you can be permanently barred from entry to the U.S. for immigration fraud. If you're a U.S. citizen and you try to have your fiancée enter and stay in the country in a fraudulent way, you could both get a penalty of five years in a federal prison and a fine of $250,000. Why take such a terrible risk?
The only way a person can come to the U.S., marry, and end up staying is if they genuinely came with no intention of staying. If it's found that the person was in contact with their future spouse before they arrived here, no permanent visa will be granted.
