You'll probably have to leave the country for a few months then come back... unless you're from Mexico, in which case the government doesn't seem to care.

You enter on c1d visa and overstay for 7 years if you go back will you be able to come back if your wife going back in your country with you?

It wont matter if your spouse came with you to reapply you back, theyll say no. Best thing to do is after 5 years of being out of the country, go to an American embassy and petition the government to let you back in. I know this because my husband overstayed his crewman visa for 5 years and now my husband is back in his country. By the year 2014, we will put in a petition. 5 years will pass by the time we apply. I do however visit my husband once a year. We also have a child, but due to the currency difference, also language, I stay in the U.S.. Wish you the best of luck.

How can an alien get married to a US citizen and attain legal rights?

If the Alien is legal in the USA then they can legally and genuinely get married and file for AOS (Adjustment Of Status) so that the alien may become a permanent resident. However, if the alien is not legally in the USA, he/she must leave, go back to their country. The US citizen may then file for a K-1 (fiancee) visa for the alien. This usually takes a shorter period of time than the AOS. However make sure that there is no 3 or 10 year bar for the alien who may have overstayed his visa or violated the immigration regulations as this may jeopodaize the case and the process may take longer.

If someone entered the US legally overstayed for eight years and married a US citizen how much would they have to pay in fines?

Nothing they need to file for another visa in their country to come back. The person would need to leave the US voluntarily or be deported. Even though the original entry was legal the person is now out of status and considered unlawfully present. A person who overstays a visa or is otherwise in the US unlawfully for 12 months or less is subject to deportation and barred from applying for reentry for 3 years. A person who overstays a visa or is otherwise in the US unlawfully for more than 12 months is subject to deportation and barred from applying for reentry for 10 years. The exception is of said person qualifies for asylee or refugee status. Foreign nationals legally married to US citizens are given the opportunity to plead a case for "hardship" if they have children and are gainfully employed.
