Your spouse may gain permanent resident status if you file for her and she is granted resident status by CIS. There are many requirements to become a US permanent resident. One principal hurdle is she must demonstrate that she had a lawful admission to the US in a visa classification that permits adjustment to permanent resident status.

Your spouse would not become a permanent resident simply because you married him or her. In order for your spouse to get permanent resident status, you would need to file a series of forms with the USCIS, together with supporting evidence. There are various issues and complexities that could arise during the process, and you would be well-advised to hire an immigration attorney to represent you in this process.
