Every case is fact specific. If USCIS has reason to believe that there are issues with the marriage they can investigate. it is best to consult an immigration attorney.

It is normal in cases where fraud is suspected. I recommend tat you consult with an immigration attorney as soon as possible.


No it is not normal.

It makes me think that there is something 'not normal' about your relationship.

Do you file taxes together?
Live together?
Have insurance together?
Have bank accounts together?
Have children together?

Answering no to these questions can trigger them thinking you have a 'not normal' relationship.

If the CIS suspects marriage fraud, yes, they will request information on all the time you were married. You need to respond very carefully to the notice. If you lose, you may end up being prosecuted for marriage fraud.
