A: The conditional visa process is intended to prevent the fraud you are concerned about. Your spouse will receive a conditional green card. You will have to take off the conditions at a later date.

However, if you are worried and/or confused, please contact an immigrant attorney. An immigration attorney can walk you through the entire process.
