What will happen if a US citizen is caught marrying an immigrant just so they will get a green card?
Answer . In 1986 Congress passed the Immigration Marriage Fraud Amendment. This act sets the penalties imposed on persons who enter into fraudlent marriages to obtain resid…ent status for a foreign national. Both parties can be charged with a federal felony which carries a 2-5 year federal prison sentence and a maximum of $250,000 fine. After serving the imposed sentence the foreign national will be permanently deported and the U.S. citizen will have a record of a federal felony conviction.

Answer . You don't just get a green card. You still have to apply for a visa in order to stay in the United States. . If you get married overseas there are a few differen…t visa options. If the American citizen has been living in the foreign country for over 6 months, they can apply for an I-130 visa for their spouse through direct consular filing, and the spouse can be brought to the U.S. permanently in as little as three months. It doesn't matter how long they have been married except that there is different paperwork and processes for those who have been married for more or less than two years. I brought my foreign husband to America, however, after having only been married for a month and a half since I qualified for Direct Consular Filing.. Typically, if you do not qualify for DCF, the processing for a visa can take as long as 6 to 8 months and necessitate time apart for the fiances/spouses.

Individuals who obtain a Green Card through marriage to a U.S. Citizen are granted "Conditional" Green Card status when they enter US just after marriage, which is only valid …for two years.

After conditions are removed the applicant is issued a green card valid for 10 years.
This may not be possible at all. There is a penalty if you enter the US illegally. If there was ILLEGAL entry, then it would take a trip to the U.S. embassy/consulate in that …person's native country and have a successful I-601 waiver. These are hard to win, but if it is approved, then it would be about 18+ months before the person can enter as a permanent residency. If the waiver is denied, then the person cannot enter the U.S. for 10 years- however, it is highly unlikely that such a person would be granted a visa in the future, making it a permanent ban.
