If you are married to a US citizen but your tourist visa is expired and you lost your I-94, you should immediately apply for a new visa or return to your country. Your I-94 is filed electronically, and you can get a new copy from the Department of Homeland Security. If you don't take action yourself, you may end up being deported and not allowed to return.

What problems will an illegal alien face when he marries a citizen here if he came here on a valid tourist visa and overstayed over a year?

Overstaying a visa- no matter what classification- is grounds for deportation. If he is in hiding, you had better keep him there. Marriage would make no difference.AnswerIf the illegal alien can into the U.S. on a valid tourist visa even it is currently expired would be able to adjust status when he married a U.S. citizen. He would have to be careful about leaving the U.S. until he received his greencard because he could incur a 10 year ban for having overstayed.

How can someone who entered the US as a minor with a tourist visa and overstayed by 15 years with a SSN but no home country id marry a US citizen?

Just go get married. Your alien status has nothing to do with getting married. Normalizing your status after marriage is another matter though. You should still be able to change your illegal alien status to that of legal resident by way of marriage to a citizen, but the process will be complicated both by your past crime and your lack of documentation.

How do you marry your girlfriend if she has overstayed her tourist visa and is working under another name?

The same way you marry a girlfriend that has not overstayed. Getting married has nothing to do with immigration law. However, any falsification on the marriage license can invalidate the marriage. Being in the country illegally will not change based on marital status. If you really want to get married and have a long relationship, consult an immigration attorney.

Can a tourist on a visa waiver program 90 days who overstayed adjust status by marrying a US citizen?

this is the scenario: my wife is currently a permanent resident. We got married in Italy AFTER she got her green card . We decided not to file a petition on my behalf as that would put me on a long waiting list. We are now in the process of going to the US to accrue physical presence and get her citizenship. If I go to the US with her on a visa waiver program and overstay for about 3 years waiting for her to become a citizen, will I be able to adjust status WITHOUT leaving the US?

No, the couple would need to become legally married, the citizen spouse would need to apply for a change of status for the non citizen spouse. If it is granted the foreign spouse would be allowed to remain in the US and after having been married for two years could apply for permanent resident status.
