My fiancée is in the united states illegally from the country of the phillippines. She is living with me. How does it effect the immigration chances. We also plan on getting married immediately.

It depends upon how she entered the U.S. If she entered legally with a visa and merely overstayed the duration of her visa, then you should be able to marry her and apply for her adjustment of status. This is assuming she did not enter on a K-1 visa through sponsorship by a different U.S. citizen fiancee.
