The immigration authorities do not tolerate attempts to obtain a green card by fraudulent means. The USCIS is suspicious of fraud and pays close attention to each application and conducts in-person interviews to assess the bona fides of the marriage. It is important to have legal representation from an immigration attorney with proven success in helping clients obtain green cards through marriage.
