My Girlfriend is in Detention Prior to Removal – if I Marry Her Will She be Able to Get a Dependant Visa?

This is a sad situation for a couple who find themselves in a maelstrom of immigration difficulties caused by a less than sensible choice some time previously.
I am a permanent resident in Hong Kong and am planning to marry my girlfriend. My girlfriend is in detention prior to removal. She’s from the Philippines. I wanted to get a sponsored dependant visa for her after we get married. The problem we have is that she is now under detention in Hong Kong under Immigration Ordinance section 32. Due to the borrowing of a passport to others to use. She have already signed a letter with the Immigration Department that she will not come back to Hong Kong and will soon need to go back to Philippines. What is the chance of me getting her back once we get married?
