How soon after marrying my fiance which is an illegal immigrant. Can i file documents for his green card
The next day. You could file a petition. If your fiance qualifies for adjustment of status or not is a different story.

It all depends on whether he entered the US legally or illegally. If he or she entered illegally, you would basically be putting him or her in great danger of deportation, and there would be no chance of getting a green card without first leaving the US. By doing that, a 3 or 10 year bar to returning to US would be erected. You should consult with an experienced immigration attorney before filing anything. Good luck!

Although you can file immediately, you should consult with an immigration attorney to be sure he is eligible.
Nationwide Immigration Law Practice
I agree with the other attorneys. Generally people who entered the US illegally cannot adjust their status in the us even if they are married to a SuS Citizen unless they have an immigrant petition filed for them before April 30th 2001.
Consult with an immigration lawyer.

You can file the I-130 right away. But as my colleagues state, you should first consult with an experienced immigration attorney.
