My fiance will file a marriage certificate abroad tomorrow, and she is going to come in to the states on Aug 1st to file i130 and i485 F2A. The marriage certificate will be from another country but will be translated and notorized. Would it be found suspicious that two dates are so close together? Also she will come in to the US with OPT.
If CBP learns that she is married to a permanent resident, they likely deny her admission to the U.S. or offer her the opportunity to withdraw her application for admission. Rather than worry about the gap between the date of the marriage certificate and the date of filing for adjustment of status, you should be concerned with your ffiancée's pre-conceived intent to enter the U.S. as a non-immigrant and filing to Adjust Status upon arrival. Assuming she get admitted by CBP, the Adjustment application would likely be denied on the ground that she committed fraud by concealing her true motive for entering the United States, which was to file for permanent residence. Consult an immigration lawyer immediately.
