The simple answer is for you to become a USC and marry him at that time. Good luck!

Once you are married he can apply to adjust status. He should avoid overstaying his visa by getting extensions or marrying and adjusting ASAP. It would be wise to consult with an immigration lawyer for a more in depth assessment of your situation.

At this point, you can't help in the short term. Once you are married, you can apply for an immigrant visa. Currently it will take several years before your wife can then obtain a green card based on your marriage. So in the meantime she needs to find her own way to be legally in the US- like a student visa or a work visa.

You can only petition for your fiance after you are married. If you are, then you can file for the permanent residence while in the US, without needing to leave. Please call me for details and a more specific timeline.
