I plan to fly to Japan to marry a women who lived in the United States but is now back in Japan. We met while she had a student visa in Washington State. She applied for a green card lottery but did not get selected. I have not seen much information on how a marriage outside of the United States affects the green card application status for my future wife (save, the additional paperwork that is required). How do the Immigration officers view marriage outside of U.S? Will this hurt her chances of getting a green card? Will this marriage be "flagged" as suspicious - therefore potentially putting us through a more difficult interview process?
