Doing research on the internet can be useful to help a person become aware of immigration-related legal issues, but it is no substitute for getting legal analysis and advice from an immigration attorney. Generally, a U.S. citizen who marries a fiance who entered the country lawfully and with inspection, but who then overstayed a visa, will be able to successfully complete an Adjustment of Status application process for the foreign national spouse in the Immediate Relative visa category. It would be wise for you and your fiance to engage an immigration attorney who, after learning all of the relevant facts, will be able to advise about eligibilities, options and strategies and to provide legal representation in the application process.
