Divorcing an illegal alien

I have been married to a woman

from Peru for the past 4 months.

When I married her her visa had

expired and we are now in the

process of getting her greencard and

validating the marriage, however, in

the past few months I have found

that she may have only married me

to stay in the country. If I get a

divorce I fear it will look like I tried to

help defraud the government. Can I

obtain a divorce without getting in

''trouble''? Will she get deported if we

get a divorce before she gets her

green card?
