There is a filipino girl trying to marry my brother. She has tried to get married before and failed. The girl is over 10 years younger than my divorced brother. I think she is trying to marry him to get the greencard.
It is very likely because overstaying on visa will be "forgiven" once she marries a US citizen. She can get a green card provided she does not have any other issues to worry about, such as criminal record.
Hi, her visa overstay may be forgiven if she has a bona fide marriage with a US citizen and there are no other serious issues.

If you think she is trying to marry him for only a greencard ... try to convince him to re-think the marriage ... perhaps you can talk him into a long engagement ... once she realizes that she won't be getting a fast greencard, she might give up interest.
