Can I File for a Diplomat?

Asked over 1 year ago - Santa Clarita, CA

My fiancé is coming here as a Diplomat from our country and would like to stay here permanently. Can I marry her and file I130 for her? What could be the consequences if she abandons her diplomatic mission to live with me as a wife?
