If a US citzen is married to an illegal alien for over a year and they have a baby what should the illegal alien do to became a legal resident?

The couple should contact an immigration lawyer. If an illegal alien is in this country for more than one year, then they are subject to a 10 year bar from ever intering USA agin. The couple should hire a lawyer to help with the process of filing the required forms, and the illegal will have to then return home to his/her country and wiat for an interview at the American Consulate. This is a process, and the bar can be waived if spouse files for a petition. The illegal will have to remain in home country for 30-45 days and wait for the approval of the petition. If approved the illegal will then receive his/her green card. If denied they will be subject to the ten year bar. Nothing is guaranteed in this process, and any convictions of a felony or misdemeanor will be a disadvantage to this person.
